William W. Converse Pres. of Winchester Repeating Arms Co.

Surnames: Converse, Pardee, Winchester
I'm looking for information for William W. Converse who was the 3rd president of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. I have a copy of his marriage announcement to Miss Mary Augusta Pardee that indicates William is "...of Newbern, N.C." William and Mary were married 28 Dec 1855 in New Haven, CT. I also have a copy of his obituary that shows William came to New Haven when he was 30 years of age and that he died at 55 years of age apparently of cancer. I cannot find him on any census and am at a complete loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please feel free to contact me at beckie.campbell@hotmail.com
Thanks!
