William Ithamar Singletary, was born 5 November 1862 near Fort Gaines Georgia. Reaching manhood he moved to the St. Andrews Bay area of what was then Washington County (arriving at least by 1884). In 1884 he married Sarah Theodocia Ellison in North Bay, Florida. Her family had already settled in that area. He took an active interest in all things pertaining to good government. He served as a Washington County commissioner before 1913 and as the first Mayor of Millville, established in 1913. He and his wife had two sons and two daughters. He died in 1935 and his wife in 1944, both in Millville. His descendants still live in Bay County.
