Here is his death notice from the Chicago Daily Tribune of January 15, 1918:
William A. Merigold, like his one-time partner W.D. Kerfoot spent his whole life immersed in Chicago real estate. Like Kerfoot, Merigold bounced back after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 realizing that the private ownership of land is one of the bedrocks upon which this country was founded. But unlike Kerfoot who died of old age, Merigold attempted to fight a Chicago snowstorm - and lost.
