Mr. Killingsworth was born in McMinn County, Tennessee, January 6, 1827. His parents were William and Matilda (McClure) Killingsworth, who came to this county in 1839 and settled in section one of the Boone Township. The father died in 1865, though the mother still survives at this writing, and is living on the old homestead. William, Jr., received his education in the common schools, and early in life chose the vocation of farming. In 1848 he purchased the place where he now resides three miles southeast of Walnut Grove, his farm containing 171 acres of good land and well improved. During the civil war of 1861 - 65 he was one of the first to volunteer his services for home protection, and served faithfully till the close of the war. Mr. K. was first married February 17, 1848, but his wife died in 1865, and he was again married February 17, 1848, to Miss Rebecca Jordan. By his first marriage Mr. K. had seven children, and three by the last marriage. Five of the first and all of the last children survive at this writing. The present Mrs. Killingsworth belongs to the Cumberland Presbyterian church. Mr. K. is one of the early settlers, as he came to this state with his parents in 1839. Having passed through many changes and privations, he has at last, by industry and economy, amassed a competency sufficient for comfortable living and stands well in the community where he is known.
