William married Amanda Connel who was born in 1842. Her mother's name was Lucinda, but the father's name is not known. After William's death, Amanda and her son are found in 1880 living with Amanda's mother, Lucinda Connel (Counel) and her brothers Theodore and Edward in Newark. Amanda did receive a pension for William of $5.00 per month.

William and Amanda had one son. His name was Bertram R, and they called him Bertie. He was born about 1870. There were some newspaper articles of when he did recitals in school. Bertram was on his way to visit the home of Mr. Joseph Anderson about six miles south of Newark when he died, but it does not state how he died. Bertram died about 12 May 1888 at the age of 18 years. He is buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery in Newark, Ohio.
