William appears in the 1900 US PA census as a minor child of William Miller, living in Northumberland Borough, Northumberland county, PA. His age at the time was listed as 8 years. In the 1920 census records for the same locale, his age is noted as 28 years, and he was single and still residing w/his father and stepmother after his discharge from the army. His obituary lists this address as 641 Queen Street, where he bordered at the home of Mrs. Bessie Greak. As a veteran of WWI, William served in Company B 153rd Division and then transferred to the 26th Company Searchlight Division in France. During that time he took part in two major battles: the Somme Offensive and the Meuse-Argonne Battle. Following the war he received his discharge at Fort Dix, March 1919. William died of a heart attack while employed at the Keystone Forging Plant in Newark, NJ. He was an employee there for about 20 years. He was a member of Post 44 American Legion, and at his funeral, Post 44 gave him a burial with full military honors at Riverview Cem. The information above was taken from his obituary. His grave in Riverview is situated in the center of a circular memorial tribute to other soldiers, located in the center of the cemetery. Birth and death dates are inscribed on his tombstone.
