My relative.

According to the newspaper of Aug 28, 1909, William was the oldest living man in Galesburg and Knox Co. He died at the home of his son on W. Davis St. in Galesburg. He had been in good health until an illiness of 1 month and had been bedfast for 2 weeks. In his early years, he roamed the country considerably, and being of Indian extraction on his mothers side, he loved the wild woods and lived close to nature all his days. He walked back and forth to Ky several times after moving to Galesburg, to visit friends. His wife died in March of 1909 at the age of 96. He was survived by six children: Henry, Will, John, Mary, James, and Louise. He was a man of good memory and told many interesting tales of the pioneer days
