William T. Coatney was born February 16, 1837, in Lafayette County, Mo., and is the son of George W. And Margeret (Smith) Coatney. The father passed his boyhood in North Carolina and when sixteen immigrated to Kentucky, traveling the long distance on foot. In that State he married and engaged in farming, but later learned the tanner's trade. After his marriage he lived several years in Missouri, and then immigrated to Crawford County, Ark. He also lived a short time in Washington County, but died here June 20, 1888, aged eighty-three. The mother was born and reared in Kentucky, and like her husband enjoyed no educational advantages.
