The following story is told in "Industrial Chicago: the lumber interests" about William:

William, Sr and Susan moved from Connecticut to Ellsworth, Ohio, in the spring of 1806, requiring seven weeks to perform the journey, as at that time there were no public conveyances.

They suffered many privations and hardships for several years, as they were among the early pioneers of Trumbull County, Ohio, where they settled, being annoyed more or less by Indians, who still remained in that portion of the State. William rode on horseback forty-four miles to buy a bushel of salt, for which he paid S5, and it being so wet, a large percentage of it drained out of the bag on the way home, which nearly ruined the horse by causing a great scald on his back.
