William bought the farm he born on in 1875. He helped his father convert the forest into farm land. He received his education in the common schools of Benezette. He stepped backward into a stairwell on the barn floor and fell to the basement. He was paralyzed and the doctor felt that his neck and spine were fractured. He was taken to the University Hospital in Philadelphia where he died. From the Renova Daily Record: Winslow was taken to the hospital on Saturday in a special train after he had fallen down stairs at home. The run between Driftwood and that city was made in record time, the train having been given the right of way. The special was met at Thirty Second and Market Streets by an ambulance from the hospital. An operation was performed immediately but proved of no avail. They were members of the Church of the Messiah.
