He returned to the company in April and continued in the assault against Vicksburg. After the fall of Vicksburg, he was discharged at the Big Black River Camp 4 Aug. 1863.

After the war he moved his family back to Indiana where he purchased a quarter section of land adjacent to the present town of Sidney. Later, he lived in North Manchester, Wabash Co., Ind.

Reared a Lutheran, William and Mary became members of the German Baptist Church in 1873.

It is said William wore wool underclothes in summer on the theory that wool would protect against the heat as well as the cold. Because he hated briers of all kind, his will specified that a concrete slab be installed over his grave to prevent them from growing there. Within a few years the concrete cracked and, sure enough, briers grew there! The slab was removed, and the area is now mowed regularly.
