Death: Feb. 18, 1980
Alameda County
California, USA

AKA: William Holovako, William Holoweiko, Wasyl Goloweiko, Vasiliy Goloveiko

He was raised on a farm with lots of horses.

Moved to Albion, Michigan in 1927. Had been there previously, about 1911, when he was about 15. He stayed for two years. He promised his father he would return to Russia when his father asked him to, which he did in 1914 at the age of 17.

William was drafted into the Russian Army. He served as a scout in Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and later the Georgia Republic during World War I. He was wounded three times and was hospitalized in St. Petersburg. William was there when the Russian Revolution began. When he arrived home the area was once again under Polish rule.

In November-December 1927, he returned to the United States to Michigan. There they stayed a short while before moving onto Oakland, Alameda County, California.

William and his daughter Mary became American citizens on February 16, 1934. The Citizenship Judge suggested he change his name to "Hall." He at that time changed his name.
