William Herman was born the fifth of eight children (but only the second to reach adulthood) to Richard Judson and Fanny nee Wheeler Coghill. He grew up in Henderson county as did his wife-to-be. Their daughter Josephine was born in Illinois, and then they moved to South Dakota for a few years, where their son Richard was born. Both William and Matilda worked at a laundry at Fort Pierre, as enumerated in the 1910 census. They moved back to Illinois, settling in Jacksonville. There William worked at the J. Capps & Sons Woolen Mills (later the Jacksonville Woolen Mills) where he performed many of the jobs necessary to process raw wool (obtained from the numerous sheep herds in the area) into fabric. He bought a piece of land west of town and went back to farming, the work he was brought up on; he had his own truck garden when he suddenly died. Years later, his son also worked as a gardener.
