William Blythe, the third child of Mary Jane Williams and Andrew Blythe, was born January 30, 1877 and died October 15, 1952. He was an electrician, and on November 3, 1909, he married Daisy Stone who was born in 1894 [they were divorced]. They were members of the Baptist Church. They had three children: William Blythe, Howard Oscar Blythe, and Viola Blythe.

William Blythe, of White City, Kansas, passed away last Friday at St. John hospital in Salina, where he had been for several months. He had been in the hospital since August suffering from lung cancer. Three weeks ago a blood clot developed in the left foot, and gangrene set in, causing his death.
