MORNING STAR - 25 March 1863:
***************************
William F. Mills, aged 30 years died at L'Anguille in Arkansas.
Brother Mills was a devoted Christian, and for some ten years was a member of the Free Will Baptist church at Eaton, New Hampshire.
He went west with the view of teaching, but when the attempt was made to subjugate Kansas by the slave oligarchs, headed by Atchison and Stringfellow, he hastened to the rescue of that ill-fated territory, carrying a rifle presented by his brother, Reverend James E. Mills, now of Vassalboro in Maine. After the redemption of Kansas he returned to Wisconsin and remained till the call of his country to meet the rebels, when he enlisted in the 1st Wisconsin calvary, September 5, 1861, and aided in expelling the rebels from Missouri. His regiment followed their retreat to Arkansas, where he fell as a Christian patriot.
