William Sandoe (son of Daniel Sandoe and Elizabeth Collier) was born 9 Jan 1844 in Upper Paxton Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. In childhood, he moved with his family to Stephenson County, Illinois. During the 1860 U.S. census, he lived in Stephenson County with his sister and brother-in law William and Susannah Wagonholse. Later in 1860, he moved to Monroe, Green County, Wisconsin to learn the harness trade.

At the start of the Civil War, he enlisted in Company G of the 93rd Illinois Volunteer Infantry—the same military unit as his cousin, William Harrison Collier (the latter of whom died in the confederate prison at Andersonville).

On completion of his enlistment, William returned to Monroe, Wisconsin and worked for D. F. Corson & Son. In the fall of 1867, he opened a harness shop in Orangeville, Stephenson County, Illinois. In addition to his work in the harness shop, he served as Postmaster, Township Clerk, and Police Magistrate. He was a member of the Republican Party and the Reformed Church in Orangeville.

In 1868, William married Ophelia V. Knepper (daughter of Henry Franklin Knepper and Sarah A. Carnes, born Mar 1852 in Maryland). Between 1880 and 1885, William and Ophelia moved to Melvern, Osage County, Kansas. In Mar 1890 in Melvern, Kansas, their daughter Leonora married George Howard Noblit.

By 1900, William and Ophelia were in Mammoth Spring, Fulton County, Arkansas, where William homesteaded on 40 acres of public land that were deeded to him 8 Apr 1903. (Their son-in-law G. Howard Noblit homesteaded 112 acres that were deeded to him, also on 8 Apr 1903).

William died 6 Aug 1916 and was buried at Riverside Cemetery in Mammoth Spring, Arkansas. Ophelia died 30 Sep 1932 in Pulaski County, Arkansas.
