William remained in the Rosedale area of Parke County, Indiana, until late 1904, when he left for North Dakota to take up homestead near Ryder. He later worked for the McClure Coal Company at Minot and in 1911 went to Devils Lake to be employed at the Stevens Grain and Fuel Co.

A prominent member of the Masonic bodies, William served as Master Mason of West Lodge in Minot and later transferred to the Minnewaukan chapter in Devils Lake. He served as commander of the Cyrene Commandery of the Knights Templar during 1932 and 1933, was a member of Doric chapter, Royal Arch Masons, of the Scottish Rite bodies, and of Kent Temple Knights of the Mystic Shrine at Grand Forks. William was also a member of the Elks, serving as past noble grand of the I.O.O.F. lodge and an active member of the B.P.O.E. He held the first three stations of the Elks until moving to the west and figured prominently in the activities of that group. He was secretary of the Devils Lake Rotary club for several years.

At the time of his death he owned the Lake Fuel Company, which he had purchased from the Stevens Grain and Fuel Company several years before.

James Boyd Williams

James Boyd Williams
b. 20 July 1796, Sevier County, Tennessee, to William and Rachel (Kemp) Williams
d. 11 July 1883, Mt. Pleasant, Henry County, Iowa

m. 14 August 1817, Union County, Indiana
Hepzibah Stanton
b. 14 October 1798, Campbell County, Virginia, to Latham and Huldah (Butler) Stanton
d. 19 June 1873, Salem, Henry County, Iowa

Children with Hepzibah Stanton:
• Matilda Butler (1818-1841/42) married Hamett Graham
• Lilbern J. (b. 1820) married Emma Gilken
• Frederic S. (b. 1822) married Mary Park
• Lydia Minerva (1827-1892) married Benjamin Franklin Hord
• William Lewis (1831-1832)
• Addison Rankin (b. 1836) married Sarah J. Hord

James immigrated to Indiana in 1814, probably from Jefferson County, Tennessee. He left in 1846 for Ft. Madison, Iowa.

Because the Quaker records indicated the family moved from Chatham, Orange County, North Carolina, to Surry County, North Carolina about 1794, it was not certain whether James Boyd was born in North Carolina or Tennessee. When a copy of his death record was located in Mt. Pleasant, Henry County, Iowa, it stated his place of birth was “East Tennessee,” and a copy of his 1883 obituary stated he was born in “Severe” County, Tennessee.
