William's father, James Salyer, and brother, John Salyer, both moved to Macon County, Missouri with William.

William's father died in 1863 during a visit back to Cass County, Indiana. He suffered a fall which caused head trauma. In the 1870 census, William's step-mother Mary J. (Shepard) Salyer was living with him and his family in Macon County, Missouri:
