William came from New York in and early day, probably in the 1820's in settled in the Ohio/Michigan area.He was one of the early pioneers in Sylvania township Ohio.His first daughter, Elizabeth (Libbie) was the first white child born in Sylvania, OHio, Township.
He owned land in Ohio and also lived in Whiteford MIchigan and Tecumsah.
