Research Note, 26 Sep 2018:
Lee Pound in his 1967 book identifies William's parents as Eli Elijah Heiple and Mary Rosanna Snyder. All evidence currently available shows William's parents as Benjamin F. Heiple and Sarah Lohr. Eli was the brother of Benjamin, who had died when William as very young, and did live in the same area, apparently causing the confusion.26
