He was a coal miner, which made it necessary for him and his family to move around wherever his work took him. In 1861 , three of his seven children died of smallpox. He and his wife decided to go to America . The missionaries advised them to send the wife and the three small children first and the saints would take care of them. Then as soon as he could, he was to bring the other children and join his wife in the Valley. His wife left in the spring of 1864 . Seventeen days after the ship sailed, Jane gave birth to a baby boy. While they were coming up the Missouri River , baby George took cold and died. While going through Wyoming , Jane took sick and died. Friends on the trek took care of the other children until William 's brother David came and got them. He cared for them until their father came about two years later. In 1866 , William and his two oldest daughters left Scotland for America . Upon his arrival in Utah , he immediately went to American Fork where his children were. William had met a younger woman on board ship and a year later they were married. Four years later, she became dissatisfied with marriage and left him. William and his son asked a neighbor to see if he could persuade her to come home. The brother to the man where she had gone, took a shot gun and shot at him. William said, "You've almost shot me," whereupon the man raised the gun again and shot William in the back, killing him. William was a very caring husband and father who worked hard to provide for his family and get them together in Utah . He had to face many trials during those years and then he was the victim of a senseless murder, leaving three young children orphans.
