WILLIAM H. CARL, undertaker; P. O. Clayton. The subject of this
sketch
was born in Pennsylvania, Oct. 20, 1849. His father, Jacob, was united
in
marriage with Anna Thurman. They were the parents of twelve children,
five
daughters and seven sons, viz.: Mariah, Sarah A., Elizabeth, Mary E.,
Rebecca, Peter, Gabriel, Isaac, John W., and William, our subject. Mr.
Carl
emigrated to Ohio in 1865. William assisted his father with the duties
of
the farm during the days of vacation until he was at the age of 14 years,

after which he worked on the neighboring farms until he was 21 years of
age.
In 1870 he commenced to learn the cabinet trade, which he continued in
until
he finished. He worked journey work in Dayton until he located in Salem,

engaging in business for himself. In 1876 Mr. Carl took for wife
Elizabeth
Tobias, whom he lived with two years, she being summoned by the angel of
death to that world whence no traveler returneth.
