I know this is an old thread, but this is my family so anyone searching this family can contact me. When Marion died, William left Ontario and came to Casselton ND where he homesteaded. All of the children lived here at some point before most of them moved west. William left for the Spokane and Seattle areas in the mid 1880's and died on Mar 7 1899. Heis buried in Greenwood Memorial Terrace in Spokane.
