He was married at time of death to Josephine Hargis (Sep 1859-1918).
They were married in 12 Dec 1879.

They were living in Jasper County, MO according to the 1880, 1900 and 1910 census records.

William was living with his siblings Mary and James with his parents in Clay, Greene Co., MO according to the 1860 census.

In 1900, William and Josephine were living with their children, Minnie M, Jennie and Mattie in Galena Township, Jasper Co, MO.

I do not think I am related to William's family but I am interested in tracking his ancestors backward to Virginia where my family also lived.

Farewell my wife and children all
From you a father Christ doth call.
