Glasco Sun, Aug. 3, 1906, page 4:
William Williamson Acuff was born in Granger County, Tennessee, July 29, 1832, and died near Wells, Kans., July 27, 1906, lacking two days of being seventy four years old. At the age of twenty-three he emigrated to Indiana, afterwards to Illinois, then Iowa, coming to Glasco, Kans., in 1872 and taking a claim northeast of Glasco. The latter years of his life were spent with his children at Oak Hill, Wells and Glasco. He was married early in life to Hester Johnson, who died shortly after their marriage. In 1860 he married Sarah Bennet, who died in 1893. Four sons, Horace, Joseph, William and Jesse, were born to this union. He was a member of the United Brethern Church. In his last years he often expressed his readiness to go when the Lord called him. He suffered greatly in his last illness, but was always patient and submissive to God's will.
Mr. Acuff was a familiar figure to many of our readers, and it was always a pleasure to us to meet and greet him on his periodical visits to Glasco for he and his boys were associated with the earlier history of Cloud county. The remains were brought to Glasco, where funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.T. Bates in the Methodist church, after which they were laid to rest in our beautiful cemetery.
