William George Keysor received a common school education, was raised in the 8th Ward and baptized Feb. 5, 1878, by Joseph McMurrin; he was ordained successively to the offices of Deacon, Elder and Seventy. Before he had reached the age of 21 years he made adobes and built a house. With his young wife he took possession of the house he had erected seven years before.

In the latter part of 1901 Bro. Keysor was called on a mission to the Northern States, during which time he labored in the State of Wisconsin, principally in the cities of Milwaukee and Le Crosse. While thus engaged as a missionary it fell to his lot to perform a marriage ceremony which made a Quaker and a Catholic man and wife—something unusual, indeed, in the experience of a "Mormon" Elder.

In 1913 (May 19th) Bro. Keysor was ordained a Seventy by John H. Vincent and at once became a member of the 171st quorum of Seventy.
