Death: Dec. 29, 1959

William Micheal was the 5th child, and 3rd son, to Charles & Mary Ann (Horrigan) Mahan. He lived in Oelwein, Iowa for part of his youth and also in Groton, SD before settling into life in Rockford, Illinois.

He married Emma M Bloedorn Aug 31, 1909 and to them were born,
Maurice William Mahan 1910 1992
Zylpha L Mahan 1915 2009
William E Mahan 1919 1920

Sometime around 1941 Bill & Emma divorced. Soon after he married Mary (Blunt) Palmer, also divorced. At the time of Bill's death, she purchased this duel plot, but later married Frank Curry--she preceded him in death. She was buried with her 2nd husband.

William had several occupations, including Tinner and Painter, but eventually became a Plumber by trade.

(unknown who gave the information for the obit, but his middle initial & fathers name is incorrect, the children & his DOB do match but little William is not mentioned nor are his brothers and another sister.)
