GENERAL NOTE:
Russ BOOR wrote that William "was also known as Slavey, a name given to him by his siblings when very young. It seems that Russ, when asked to do something by one of his siblings, replied that he was just treated as a "slave" by everyone. The name stuck for the rest of his life. Slavey was a gambler at heart and opened the casino Saloon which in the early days was a saloon complete with gambling devices, a long wooden bar, and girls with rooms upstairs. The Casino was located in Ketchum ID and at the crossroads that later led to Sun Valley.
