After bravely serving throughout the war in the Twenty-third Iowa regiment, William L. Whistler took unto himself a wife and settled for a residence of many years on section 31, this township. His parents were pioneers of Edna township, settlers of '55. William L. reared a large family in Union township and was highly respected. In 1867 he served as township clerk of the territory including Victoria, Edna and Noble township. During his later years he was much interested in all matters concerning the welfare of the soldiers and their families, becoming a life member of the Iowa Soldiers' Orphans' Home Association.
