CAPT. WILLIAM CHURCHILL
Capt. William Churchill
William Churchill was born May 29, 1822. William was the son of Capt. Thomas Churchill and Mary Harris.
William married Sarah Crosby. Sarah died March 19, 1942.
William and Sarah had the following children:
While on one of his journeys by sea, William purchased a large family Bible. He bought it in Dublin on February 20, 1871. He apparently wanted to do some genealogy work of his own, because he marked the first page "deaths" and listed his parents, Thomas and Mary, and then all his sisters and brothers, in birth order. In front of each name was the personís date of birth, and afterwards, the date of death. This Bible is currently in the possession of Williamís great-grandson in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
According to a clipping from the Yarmouth newspaper, Capt. William Churchill was the township treasurer in Yarmouth for many years.
William died on either January 11, 1890, or December 11, 1879. (Compare the family Bible passed down to Williamís great-grandson in Yarmouth, and the family tree chart.)
