William English
 
Overview
William English and his wife Mary Jane Davidson English, emigrated from County Antrim, Ireland to America with their children in 1812. The family lived in Charleston, South Carolina for one year and then moved to Green County, Tennessee. In about 1815 they moved to the area of Springboro, Ohio where Mary Jane English died. In 1823 William English purchased land in Darke County, Ohio where he developed a farm and orchard and later on a tile mill. In later years he divided the land between his three sons and made his home with son James and his family who occupied the 12 room home William had built for his family. That home, in Versailles, Ohio, is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
