Farmer

William was married first to Sylvia COOK (b. 1880, Wisconsin. They married February 2, 1903. At least one child was born to the marriage -- Estella Leona Hooker, born about 1904 in North Dakota. In 1910, William, Sylvia, and daughter were living in Hutcheson Township, Rolette Co., North Dakota. William described himself as a farmer, who was truck farming.

By 1918, William and Sylvia were living in Big Falls, Koochiching Co., Minnesota. William was farming. In 1920, William, Sylvia, and their daughter were still in Big Falls, Koochiching, Minnesota; William described himself as a "retired farmer."

It is not known what happened to his wife Sylvia and their daughter. By 1928, William was married to a younger woman, SwanHilde ERICKSON, who had been born and had grown up in Koochiching Co. William and SwanHilde's son (also named William) was born in November 1927.

When William crossed the border into Saskatchewan, Canada, in August 1928, William described himself as Roman Catholic. His wife, SwanHilde, described herself as Lutheran. Their nine-month-old son was described as Roman Catholic.

In 1940, William, SwanHilde, and their son were living in Acme Township, Whatcom Co., Washington. William was farming. In 1942, William and his wife were in Wickersham, Acme Twp., Whatcom Co., Washington; William was farming.

For unexplained reasons, William often wrote his middle initial as "M." However, other records show his middle name as "Edward," and his grave marker shows the middle initial "E." It is possible that he had two middle names.

NOTE: Autosomal DNA proves William as the child of his known parents, proves his son William, proves his grandson and a granddaughter through son William.
