The following is from the Medina County Gazette; 8 Mar 1900:
"Again death has called from our midst one of Chatham's pioneers and a widely known and highly respected citizen. William Brinker was born in Westmoreland County, Penn., Aug. 16, 1816. He came to Ohio when he was 19 years old, walking most of way from his native state to Jeromesville, Ashland County. In 1839 he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Rice, of Spenser, O. To them eight children were born, five of whom are now living. After their marriage
they lived in Ashland County until the year 1848, when he bought a farm in this township where subdued the forest and made a home. Here he lived for 52 years and in the early morning hour of March 2, 1900, his Heavenly Father called him to his reward. Early in life he identified himself with the Christian church, and since 1858 had been a member of the Congregational church, of Chatham. So closes the earthly life of a good kind father, one who loved his family and did all he could for their comfort and happiness. The funeral was held Sunday morning at the Congregational church, his pastor, Rev. Chas. Simpson officiating. Burial at the Chatham cemetery."
