William Jesse Courtney's parents were John Riley Courtney 1835 1891 and Katherine Ann Klepper 1826 1920. His siblings were; Lurana Courtney 1855 1907, she married Irvin F Russell; Bettie Courtney 1856; Elizabeth Courtney 1856; Nancy Courtney 1858; Sarah Courtney 1860; Cornelius "Neal" McClainen Courtney 1864 1934, Addie Jane Harris; Susanett Courtney 1868; Peter "Pete" R. Courtney 1870 1955, Eliza Ella Mc Bride.

In 1870 the family was living in, what seems like a rather affluent farming community in, district 3 in White Co. Tennessee. Cave was the nearest post office. It is now listed as a historical and the building seems to no longer exist. At the time Billy was 8 years old he had several playmates living near by Floyd Gist a 7 year old son of John and Martha Gist and the two sons of John and Mary Price, Davy 11 and Jimmie 7 lived on the near farms and of course there was his little brother six year old Neely.

July 19, 1887 William Jessie Courtney and Nannie A Johnson were wed. It appears that there were no children from this union.

On January 4, 1910 death claimed William in Morristown, Hamblen Co., Tennessee. (bio by Audrey DeCamp Hoffman)
