William was the great-great-great grandfather of Billy Cranston in 1880 and the Blue Wild West Ranger.
When Kimberly the Pink Ranger is accidentally sent back in time to the year 1880, during Angel Grove's Wild West period, she finds that she is not the only one from her time who has gone back. Goldar, Needlenose, and a platoon of Putties have also come back in time to destroy Angel Grove's past. Kimberly realizing that she is incapable of defeating Goldar's forces by herself travels to the Command Center and convinces Zordon of her intentions. Zordon gives her the Red, Black, Yellow, and Blue Power Coins to equip her own fighting force to stop Goldar.
Kimberly gives the Blue Power Coin to William to allow him to morph into the Blue Wild West Ranger. While he opposes violence, he defends himself regardless. With their help and the aid of the White Stranger, Kimberly is able to drive Lord Zedd's forces back to the present. After Goldar and his forces leave Angel Grove's past, Kimberly returns the Power Coins to Zordon and is returned to the present shortly afterwards. After the powers are safety returned to Zordon and Kimberly goes back to her time her ancestor Fuschia O'Hara comes to colonial Angel Grove, with William there to welcome her.
