William Wing was born at Harwich, Massachusetts, on 25 May 1767, the son of Samuel Wing and Hannah (Sears) Wing.[1]


William Wing and Cynthia Cooper, both of Livermore, Massachusetts, publshed there on 16 Sep 1796 their intention to marry,[2] and they married at Jay, Maine (then in Massachusetts) on 23 Sep 1796.[3] They were first cousins, both grandchildren of Elnathan Wing and Hannah (Allen) Wing,


William Wing moved from Harwich, Massachusetts, to Winthrop, Maine (then in Massachusetts), with his parents in 1774. The 1928 history of Livermore, Maine, says that he came to Livermore "previous to 1788,"[4] but he is not listed among the heads of families there in 1790,[5] nor does he appear there in the 1790 census. He sold his farm in Livermore in 1813 and moved to Freeman, Maine, and subsequently to Stetson, Maine, where he lived until his death.[4]


No record has been found of the death of William Wing.
