  • Notes 
    • According to William's testimony, he sold his store in Dent, Ohio, shortly after the death of his wife's father and on 15 November 1852, he and his wife with two friends and the friends' children, "set out for New York and sailed by steamer, reaching San Francisco January 1853." Apparently, they didn't strike it rich for they returned to the Midwest, settling in Greensburn, Indiana, where they remained until their death.
