From a biographical sketch found in History of Western Maryland by J. Thomas Scharf, published in 1882:

William L. Culler, a well and favorably known citizen of Ballanger District, Frederick County, has been occupied in operating his farm formerly styled "Hazel Thicket," now called "Deer Spring," about three years. This tract of land, comprising one hundred and eleven acres, is being rapidly brought into a fine condition under it's present proprietor's systematic methods of doing business, and is now much more valuable than when he became its owner. He is a practical and successful farmer, thoroughly understanding every detail of the proper management of a farm. The second son of Philip Culler, our subject was born in 1848 in Frederick District, about a mile and a half from his present home. He went to the schools in the vicinity of his boyhood's home, and gave his able assistance to his father in the varied
labors of the farm until he had attained his twenty-fifth year. He learned the miller's trade and followed that occupation for about seven years. Not caring to make this his chief employment in life, as he preferred agriculture, he rented a farm in Lewistown District, and dwelt thereon up to his removal to his present home some three years ago. As the years rolled by he accumulated a competence by his own industry and excellent financial judgment. On his farm is always to be found a very good grade of live stock, as he believes in keeping the best. He has been too busy to hold office, nor does he care to do so, but is always faithful in the discharge of every duty devolving upon him as a citizen. His ballot is given to the nominees of the Democratic party. Religiously he is a Lutheran. His unfailing goodness of heart and genuine courtesy to one and all make him a general favorite with all with whom he comes in contact, and his warm personal friends are innumerable. In 1872 Mr. Culler married Sarah C. Krantz, daughter of William Henry Krantz. Mrs. Culler was born in Virginia, but was reared and educated in the schools of this county. This marriage has been blessed with five children: Roy S., who married Sallie A. Wyatt; Kate May, wife of G. M. Miller; W. Walter, Philip H. and Wilbur D., who are still at home.

This was recorded in The News, Frederick, Maryland, June 3, 1891.

On Tuesday last as Mr. Wm. Culler and Mr. Keller, who are working for Mr. Samuel M. Culler, were sawing a large log in two in the latter's wood lot, one end of the log rolled on Mr. Wm. Culler's left foot bruising it very much, which has stopped him from work for a while.
