THE WESTERN STAR, 27 April 1895

Hon. William H. Carter, who resided in this vicinity for a number of years with his family, and did a real estate business, died at Wellington, Mo., Thursday night of last week. He had been ill for some time, and his death was not unexpected. He was a native of Richmond, Va., and was born January 30, 1842. He was united in marriage to Miss Ada B.. Campbell, of Lafayette county, Mo., in December 1866. Four children are the fruit of their union; Jennie, Ollie, Kenneth and Bryon.

In November, 1880, he was elected to represent the eastern district of Lafayette county, Mo., in the state legislature; was the democratic candidate, and was elected by a large majority, without any effort on his part, showing his popularity among the voters of his district. In 1888, he was the democratic nominee for state senator in this district, but was defeated, owing to the large odds against him. He was a man of strong likes and dislikes and was very loyal to his friends. He was
owner of some land adjacent to Coldwater, at the time of his death. He was an honest, conscientious man and a christian gentleman.
