    William was born in America, a sawmill town in southeastern Oklahoma,in the Ouachita Natoinal Forest.

    America is a ghost town in southeastern McCurtain County, Oklahoma,United States. It was located 7 miles southeast of Haworth. The townwas named after America Stewart, wife of Tom Stewart, a localresident.

    America grew around a sawmill built by William Spencer and his threebrothers in 1907.  The Spencer family built 40 houses to lease tosawmill workers, and by 1910 there were 200 people living in America.In 1911, after all the timber had been cut, Spencer opened a cottongin and general store and became a cotton buyer.  Cotton grown on thecleared land was shipped out by the Arkansas and Choctaw Railway('Frisco) that ran through the town.  After cotton production declinedin the 1920s, most residents moved out. The cotton gin closed in 1933, around the time when the Great Depression was at its worst.  The postoffice, established since July 24, 1903, was disestablished onFebruary 15, 1944.  The general store closed the next year, completingthe decline. ... Today, part of the former townsite of America is inthe Ouachita National Forest. Only two old houses and a railroadmarker remain.
