William G. Peters
- Born: Abt 1871
- Marriage: Anna Katherine
- Died: 12 Mar 1909, Quincy, Adams Co., Illinois about age 38
At his death, William left his widow and 5 children, ages 4 to 13. Working backward from the oldest child (13 in 1909), one could presume he married about 1895. If so, and he was about 24 years old, his bith would be about 1871.
On October 24, 1908, William was carrying vegetables down his stairs at the the family home on S. 12th St. He fell and broke his neck. He was paralyzed from the neck down, and survived another 6 months.
The funeral service is listed as being in his father, John's, home at 730 Van Buren, Quincy. This is what connects him to his father, John, even though William is not listed in any other newspaper clippings of John. He is not listed as having predeceased his father by only 6 months when John's obituary was published.
William married Anna Katherine. (Anna Katherine was born about 1873.)
