He was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he appears with his family in the 1881 Census,[1] but his family moved to Lowell when he was a young man.

He lived in Chelsea, Massachusetts, for 20 years.

He worked at the Chelsea Furnace Company and later Walker & Pratt Co. The census lists his occupation as a moulder at a foundry.

In the 1900 census from Boston, the 40-year-old William says he came over in 1879, both parents from Nova Scotia.

In the 1910 census from Chelsea, the 51-year-old William says he came over in 1889, born in Canada, both parents from Canada.

In the 1920 census from Chelsea, the 61-year-old William says he came over in 1881, born in Canada, both parents from Canada.

Other sources for this page include an obituary found in the Whitten family bible.
