Birth: Jul. 27, 1814
Death: Oct. 4, 1899

Settled in story county as a farmer before 1858, making him one of the county's earliest settlers.
From biographical and historical memoirs of Story County, Iowa, p. 444
William W Utterback, a pioneer and much esteemed a resident of story County, owes his nativity to Woodford County, Kentucky, born at July 27, 1814. He remained in his native state until 1828, when he moved with his parents to Indiana, in 1852 he came to story County, Iowa, and in the spring of 1853, settled where he now lives, in the eastern part of Nevada Township. I'm coming to the Township, Mr. Utterback bought out a squatter by the name of John Cox, who had cleared about 2 acres, and Mr. Utterback now owns hundred and 50 acres of well improved land, and has on his fine farm a never failing mineral spring. He led to the altar, on 27 July, 1837, Ms. Margaret Lakin, who died April 12, 1847, leaving three children: Elizabeth S., Mary E. and William F. Only Mary survives. On the 29 September, 1847, Mr. Utterback took for his second wife Ms. Margaret McCartney, a native of Livingston County, New York, born in 1819, and to them were born five children: Joanna, Martha, John W., Joseph A, and Calista. John is deceased. Mr. Utterback is a Republican, politically, and was a member of the board of Township trustees at the time of the naming of innovative Township, and he had the honor of giving it that title. He has lived to see innovative Township and story County grow from a wild and unsettled state to their present condition of prosperity, and he has aided in all enterprises for their advancement. He has many warm friends, and is one of the County's best citizens. His parents, Benjamin and Matilda (Hanks) Utterback, came to Indiana in 1828, and to story County, Iowa, in 1852. The father died in Boone County, Indiana, at the age of 65 years, and the mother passed the closing scenes of her life in Mills County, Iowa, when 75 years of age.
