William's aunt Catherine Russum (b. cir. 1846) married Baron A. J. A. Rogniat and became a baroness, residing in Paris, France. (This likely explains to some extent William's unusual middle name.) The baron predeceased Catherine, and she returned from Paris to live in Elizabeth, NJ, with her brother Thomas and his wife (William's parent). Catherine died on December 1, 1911, of a stroke.

Cause of William's death at 53 was a collapsed left lung due to pulmonary tuberculosis which he'd suffered from for the previous three years.
