  • Notes 
    • William was one of 12 children and from an early age, he had to help make a living for the family so he only obtained a few weeks of schooling each year. He lived in many towns in southern Utah as his father helped to settle them. Some of the towns were Parawan, Paragunah, Tokerville, Santa Clara, St. George, Gunlock, Pine Valley, Glendale, Panguitch and Escalante. When he was quite young he would go to the mountains with his father and help get timber and logs to make houses for the new settlements. About 1865, he went with his father to Pullenville, Nevada, to work around the mining camps of that area. He and Malinda Hunt went to Salt Lake City to be married in the Endowment House. The trip took over a month. Their first home was in Hebron, Utah. Soon after their second child was born, they decided to move to Escalante. William's father had a farm there and was pretty crippled up with rheumatism, so William went to help him. As the family increased, William worked at the sawmill on the mountain and got lumber enough to build a limber house with two rooms and an attic. In 1884, William moved his family to Thurber, Utah to help his mother take care of her farm after her husband passed away. He developed a very keen ear for music. He and three of his older sons learned to play the violin and became very good at it. In the spring of 1894, William decided to move to Enterprise which was just being settled. He was the first presiding Elder of the Enterprise Ward of the Mormon Church and led the choir for many years. He helped build the little red brick church which was their first meeting house.
