Blend of Green Valley, AZ; Mr. Richard N. Larsen of Oregon, WI; and Edward R. Tomblin of Monett, MO.

William moved to Thompson, Connecticut, in 1738 and thence to Oxford, Massachusetts in 1747. In 1754 he headed a petition to have the town of Oxford divided so as to form the new town of Charlton. In 1755 William was the treasurer of the new town of Charlton.
