William went to New York around 1835 to work as a carpenter and wheelwright. He then went to Nebraska in 1856 to become a homesteader with 160 acres. He then spent time in Memphis Tennessee until 1868 and sold his land in Nebraska and returned to Merrimack NH to be with his parents. In 1880 re removed to Hollis, the place of his Mother's birth. At his death he was living in Merrimack NH. A Whig, Republican and Prohibitionist. He loved reading and writing. An article in the Hollis TImes of March 1906 mentions that he is the Grandson of Dr. Ebenezer Rockwood and a Grandson of Rev. Daniel Emerson. Is this family buried in the East Cemetery under the Rockwood stone?
