Not much is known about the life of Williams Preston, except he is a Canadian Mountie.
In 1896, he was awarded the Medal of Honor by United States President Teddy Roosevelt at the White House. This was also where he first met and discovered he had a cousin, a man named John Reid (better known as The Lone Ranger).
In 1938, he attended his cousin John's funeral in Chicago.
- Although his last name is never mentioned in The Lone Ranger/Green Hornet #3, this character is clearly intended to be the Sgt. Preston featured in the Challenge of the Yukon radio show created by Fran Striker and George W. Trendle (who also created The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet).
- Preston's physical appearance is based on actor Richard Simmons, who portrayed the character on the Sergeant Preston of the Yukon television series.
