RE: Marshall Way family/South Wheelock,Vt cem
Hi Barbara,

Didn't know if you had seen this. Man, hell of a way to go if he had succeeded. I guess only fitting considering how his wife went.


St. Johnsbury Caledonian. volume, May 29, 1896, Page 8, Image 8

The Wheelock Murderer. Marshall
Way, the Wheelock wife murderer, who
is in the St. Johnsbury jail, still refuses to
retain counsel and acts extremely sorry
for the deed though he is ready to be
tried for it. On Friday morning he attempted suicide by trying to shut the
iron door of his cell hard enough to
crush his skull. As he was handcuffed he
could not get enough leverage on the
door, and only succeeded in hurting him
self pretty hard. Since then he has been
under guard. On Monday morning he
was brought before Justice Worcester
and waived examination. He was
bound over to the grand jury without
bail. Sheriff Sulloway and state s Attorney Taylor have examined witnesses very carefully
at Wheelock and also talked freely with Mr Way. Our account of the affair last week was substantially correct, with the exception
of the fact that the custody of the child had no part in the murder. The difficulty which was of long standing came to a
crisis over the division of the property.
It was the money involved that led Mr.
Way to commit the dreadful deed.

Yes, I did read that...very sad that she was trying to get away from him, and that for eternity she has to lay beside him.

I have to keep reminding myself when I go "mowing the rows" that each and every marker has a story that goes with it. They all get lost when I am snapping is not until I come in and load them and research that I am reminded of that. Some are absolutely amazing stories...some are very sad.

Greetings Barbara,

Someone had requested a photo for Nellie Way, and I thought I would add photos for all of the Way family in case you would like to take a look.

RE: Pvt, Charles Chambers

Go to the memorial. Click on the edit tab in the upper right. Then click on the 'Suggest any other correction or addition'. In the message field, just put 'please transfer'.

Using the 'edit' tab makes it easier for those that need to do the updates. That is why we ask that anyone wanting an update or transfer uses it.

Have a great day,

Please use the edit tab and make the request there and I will be happy to transfer the memorial.

RE: Alfred Filmer
Yes, you have duplicated both Alfred Filmer and Anne Maria (Betts) Filmer. If you compare the two memorials for both of these you will see that the photo I took in 2008 when I visited the graves is a clearer, sharper photo. Also, you will notice that both birth date and birth place for both on the memorials you have had posted are incomplete! Also the death place is also incomplete on both of them. Instead of me deleting my first posted memorials that are more complete except for the bio notes, why don't I add the bio notes to the ones I have ( I will acknowledge that the notes came from you) and then you delete yours.

RE: Whitton family
Thanks for adding the cemetery name. I found Almyra to be a bit of a mystery in my searching last night as well, though I recently did an entry on a "Myra" who turned out to be really named "Almira" so maybe looking for "Myra" would yield something that Almyra hasn't as yet. Not sure if that will be a fruitful search or not, but food for thought. Good luck! If I stumble upon anything else in my searches for other things, I'll let you know.

RE: Whitton family
No problem. Please don't forget to update his cemetery info though. I'm working on documenting all of Woodlawn and I may create another duplicate memorial, as I did originally, if I don't see him listed when I double check my stuff later on. It was purely a fluke that I noticed your memorial for him this time around! Thanks much!
