A carpenter by trade, William was engaged in contracting and building, erecting many structures near Virden, including the edifice of the First Presbyterian church.
In 1862 William enlisted as a volunteer in the Union army and served for three years. He was shot through the leg in an attack on Fort Blakely, a confederate stronghold near Mobile, Ala., a conflict which owing to the slowness of communication of the period, was fought after Lee had surrendered to Grant and the war was already won. He was discharged and returned home after some three months in Sedgwick hospital in New Orleans.
Soon thereafter William was engaged in the flour milling business until he and his family moved to Carthage, Missouri in 1885 where he had a ten acre tract well set to fruit, just south of the city, which he started in 1886. It was then bare prairie but he built a large house and planted 1,000 fruit trees. These were chiefly pears and apples of the Duchess and Ben Davis varieties. He also had about five acres in small fruits in a flourishing condition and high state of cultivation, giving promise of fine crops. He expected to employ from 40 to 50 hands during the picking season and shipped with the Carthage Fruit Exchange, being one of the organizers thereof.
