Did not find his or her parents. William's first name sometimes recorded as Ryley as for the birth of his daughter. Was Nellie a nickname or the first name that was given and birth?
Do not know if Nellie is a nickname of not, but it is recorded as both Nellie and Nellie J, so it appears to be a first name.

Is there information on his parents?

I am not sure this is the right "William R Hitchcock." His daughter's death certificate says he was born in Canada: Listed on death certificate of Sarah Cheney: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-6S2Q-NLL?i=1293&wc=QZV2-KTN%3A1042751801%3Fcc%3D1601211&cc=1601211
