His father, Joseph Stiles, was born 30-May-1830 in Trenton, MERCER County, New Jersey; he possibly served in the Union Army during the Civil War and did marry Martha Frances Stiers 22-Mar-1872. Joseph and Martha lost one child, Henry Stiles, born 05-Nov-1873 and died 07-Dec-1876, before William was born. Their other two children, Arthur Stiles (born 21-May-1879) and Gertrude Stiles (born 20-Oct-1881) were probably both born in Missouri. Family notes mention that they were in St. Louis, St. Louis County, in 1877. However, William's application for a social security number states that he was born in Osborn, De Kalb County, Missouri in 1877.
  The family moved to the Oklahoma Territory in 1890. Guthrie was the territorial capital of Oklahoma. The Oklahoma land rush was in 1895, at that time Guthrie, Logan County, had a population of 2788.

Gertrude never recovered from an operation performed in the hospital where she had gone in the hopes of bettering her health. Her mother and brothers were at the bedside at the time of her death.

Miles of the First Presbyterian Church conducted the services.
