William and his father Perry were arrested and tried for murder. They were found guilty and sentenced to hang. Perry's last request was to be buried in their peach orchard.

Their graves can still be seen there today although there are no markings, just a couple of mounds of dirt and iron ore rock showing their last resting place.
