William was born Aug 26, 1819 on a farm in Jackson County, Missouri.
He & his father-in-law, John Whisman, moved their families to Santa Clara Valley, California 1846-1848.
"In the year 1846, as we have stated in our remarks in the early settlement of Fremont township, there settled near Mountain View a family of the name of Whisman. In company with them was one WIlliam Haun, who had married one of the daughters of "Old John " Whisman. Haun and his wife took up their residence at the Mission of Santa Clara in 1846, and there remained until 1852. In the Winter of 1851-2 Mr. Haun, accompanied by his father-in-law, had taken up some land and commenced the erection of a water-power flour-mill, on the site of the Saratoga Paper Mill, a the same time building as a residence the house now occupied by John Maclay. The mill building was three stories in height; it was constructed with great care, and the water was conducted in a flume a distance of one-fourth of a mile to the wheel. In the year 1863 it was sold to Charles Maclay, and in that following , 1864, was destroyed by fire. It will thus be seen that very early in the history of the settlement of the township, Redwood had two flour-mills." Source http://www.mariposaresearch.net/santaclararesearch/SCBIOS/redwoodt.html
When he and his family arrived in Santa Clara, Ca. in 1846, he left his wife and children at the mission (probably the Mission Santa Clara de Asis) under the charge of Mrs. John W. Whisman (Hannah King Whisman). Mr. Haun and Mr. John Whisman went away to Los Angeles to fight for American military officer John Charles Frémont under Captain Burress, who was killed into he war. Mr Whisman later established the first stage lines in California and was the first American to settle in Fremont township.
