William and his wife Charlotte came to America in 1868 with two small children,Sarah Jane and Matthew. His single brother James Heathershaw
came with them, and they settled in an English settlement at Darlington, WI. They were farmers, William and his family later moved to Bancroft, Iowa where most of the family was
born, they must have spent 5 to 7 years around Lacrosse, WI.
William Heathershaw belonged to the Church of England but had a falling out with them so he became a Methodist and preached some in America.
William took a load of cattle to Chicago to sell. He asked the bellboy to wake him in the morning to catch a train to go back home, when the bellboy went to call him in the morning,
he couldn't wake him, he was dead. The gas light was on some, but no light some gas was coming out. This is a mystery, they
don't know if he forgot to turn the gas off, or if some one came into the room and turned it on when he was asleep or what. His daughter, Charlotte, doesn't think he left the gas on
as he always cautioned his wife and the rest of the family about being sure they turned the gas off. No one knows if there was any money left on him or not.
