Will was born at the homestead, Speedside, Eramosa township.  He was two years old when his father died.
He married Fravilla Robinson, daughter of Robert Robinson and Hannah Gunn, on Jan. 30, 1907³ and in the 1911 Census they are listed as farmers in Eramosa township.*  They had a coal and wood business in Fergus during World War 1. 
They later returned to the old homestead at Speedside. 
Grace C. Smith boarded with William and Fravilla** when she taught school in Eramosa from 1934-1937.^  They sold the homestead in 1945 and lived at Everton where Fravilla died.  Will lived at Drayton for a while and later near Rockwood where he died very suddenly.°
