The subject of this sketch was born October, 1861, near Polecat Creek, Sepulpa Station, on the Frisco and St. Louis Railroad, being the son of Sepulpa, who died in 1889. His grandmother lived until May 1890, dying at the age of ninety years. William was first sent to school at Tallahassee Mission, Indian Territory, in 1872, and remained five years, going from thence to Wooster University, Ohio, where he studied for three and a half years in the freshman class. On his return he was appointed United States Indian officer in 1885, and afterwards entered S. B. Severs’ establishment at Okmulgee, where he clerked for six months. In the same year he was elected cattle-tax collector, but resigned the office soon afterwards. From this time forward he devoted his attention to farming, and has now eighty acres in cultivation and a good orchard. In 1888 he married Lizzie Hartwich, by whom he has one son, aged two years. In 1887 he was elected member of the House of Warriors for Cussetah Town, and in 1891, was unanimously re-elected to the same office. Mr. Sepulpa is a good young man, energetic and ambitious, and is very popular among his people.
