William Washington Wickliffe
William Washington Wickliffe was born on October 31, 1837 in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. He was the first child born to John D. Wickliffe, but the seventh born to Rachel Oates Boggess Wickliffe.
William Wickliffe married Sarah Jane Porter on April 10, 1867 in Muhlenberg, Kentucky. He was 29 years old and she was 31 years. Sallie was born in October 1835 in Kentucky. William and Sallie settled their family on a farm in the city of Boggess in Muhlenberg County. Like his father, William was a farmer. He and Sallie had three children:
Henry W. born May 3, 1868
Minnie J. born in 1870
Robert Lee born in 1872
All three children were born in the city of Boggess, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Sometime between 1872 and 1880 William moved his family to Montague County, Texas, where they are found in the 1880 and the 1900 U.S. Federal Census.
It is difficult to find a death date for either William or Sallie, as Texas does not have a comprehensive database for deaths in the early 1900’s.
