William Henry Capps is a native of Yolo County, California. He now resides one mile north from Reardan, on a farm of one hundred and eighty-five acres, which has been his home place for nearly twenty years. The farm is devoted to grain raising and pasture and he handles considerable stock together with his other work. He has come to be one of the influential and respected citizens of this country, with the distinction of having assisted with the worthy band of pioneers to open up this fertile region. William H Capps was born on May 6, 1858. His parents, J S and Elizabeth (Morris) Capps, were pioneers to Lincoln County and are mentioned elsewhere in this volume. The earlier days of Mr Capps' life were spent in California and he remained with his father until twenty-one, then worked out at various occupations in the northern part of his native state until 1882, when he went to Nevada, taking up the stock business. From there, he came to Lincoln County, Washington, taking a homestead where he now resides. He has added more by purchase since and has improved the farm until it is one of the valuable and desirable ones of the county. In 1890, in Reardan, Mr Capps married Miss Mary, daughter of J Q and Nancy (Kidd) Reynolds, natives of North Carolina. The father came to Missouri in early day and from there in 1888, journeyed with his family to Lincoln County. He was a veteran of the Civil War. Mrs Reynolds died several years since. Mrs Capps was born in Missouri. Mr Capps came to this country with very little means and has gained his present holding by his industry since. With excellent practical judgment, he has decided that the Big Bend country is one of the best sections to be found in the west, and has become one of the substantial and respected men in his precinct. He is a member of the IOOF and past grand. (History of Big Bend-1904, p. 405)
