I received the following e-mail from Bill Etherton on November 1, 1997.

My name is William Wayne Etherton, Jr. My father's name was William Wayne Etherton. His father was Grover Jackson Etherton. Grover's father was called "grandpa bill". He was killed by lightening while mowing hay with his team of mules. We believe his name to be William Carroll Etherton. We also think William Carroll Etherton was married 3 times and that we are from the second marriage. Grover had 3 sisters: Lily, Emma, and Ada (i think). We believe his one of his wives was Louisa Edith Watson (Bennett). We believe William Carrol Etherton was born 12/1/1844, married in Jackson Co. Illinois in 1864, died June 9, 1909, in Makanda, Illinois. We think his father was Andrew Jackson Etherton, born July 19, 1822, in Tennessee, died April 3, 1878, in Jackson County, Illinois.
