  William Markley, farmer, stock-raiser and apiarian, was born in Coshocton Co., O., in 1830. At the age of 10 years he accompanied his parents, David and Rebecca Markley, to Illinois. They at first settled in Schuyler Co., but soon moved to Fulton, where Wm. was raised and received a liberal education, and was quietly pursuing his farm duties when the war broke out, when he enlisted in Co. I, 85th Ill. Inf. He was discharged in 1862 and returned to his old home, where in 1838 {date wrong} he had married Lavina Masters. They have a family of 5 children. Mr. M. has a fine farm of 320 acres. He has held many local offices.
  Note: My records shows a possible match: William Markly married Levine Lamaster January 26, 1858 in Mason County, Illinois.
