The 1896 ship manifest for William states that he was a native of the USA and his residence was Louisville, Ky.

It appears he must have been in the US prior to 1896. This may be him arriving in 1893 (1910 census states he immigrated in 1893). Unfortunately it doesn't give any information about his parents.

The census also says that his place of birth was Austria Germany, so you may want to check the history of that area at the time of his birth--he may be German rather than Austrian.
