The subject of this biography was born December, 1850, in Jersey County, Illinois, the fifth son of James Navin, of Jersey County. His mother was a Miss Barker, of Alabama. William attended public school until he was eighteen years of age, after which he began teaching school in Calhoun County, Illinois, where he remained one year, and then engaged in the study of medicine at the St. Louis Medical College. Graduating and securing his diploma in 1872, he began practicing at his home and there remained until 1876, when he moved to Rush County, Kansas. Resuming his profession, he continued to practice in Kansas and Colorado until 1881, when he moved to Coodey’s Bluff, Cherokee Nation. In 1883 he married Miss Newcome, eldest daughter of Artemus Newcome, of Delaware Reservation (now in the State of Kansas). Mrs. Navin is connected with the Conner family, of Delaware, and is a lady of good education and refinement. By this marriage there are three living children, James, William and Ettie, ranging from six months to six years of age. Dr. Navin has 250 acres in cultivation, and a small herd of cattle, horses and hogs. The doctor is a fine, intellectual-looking man, six feet two inches high, and weighing 225 pounds.
