William died in abt late 1843 or 1844, after Oct 21, 1843 (the date of his will)
It is assumed that he is buried in the same cemetery as his wife Ruth Hunt, however, there are no headstones for either Ruth or William at the Trinity Anglican Church, Kingston, Kings County, New Brunswick, Canada.
(Ruth Hunts' burial records, from 1816-1870, microfilm F-1011 of the New Brunswick Provincial Archives, indicate she was buried in the cemetery at Trinity Church on July 12, 1837.
