(See Adair and Ghigau)-William Warren, son of Charles W. and Jennie E. Tell, was born April 1, 1860, in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada.

Married June 1, 1899, Sarah Emily, daughter of Richard and Susannah Deborah (Goss) Welch, born February 25, 1874, educated at the Orphan Asylum.

They are the parents of: Alice Carey, born March 10, 1901; Benjamin Goss, born May 17, 1904; Ruth Marguerite, born November 3, 1906; Daisy Oklahoma, born January 17, 1909, and Wilson Owen Tell born October 7, 1915.

Mrs. Tells Cherokee name is Cha-ka-wa. She is a member of the Baptist Church.

Without pretensions, William W. Tell is a rarely gifted and useful citizen, his stock of general and exact information would not suffer in comparison with that of many University Professors and degree men. He was elected County Commissioner of Mayes County, November 5, 1912, and November 2, 1920, and was appointed to that office in 1915. He is a farmer.
