1876 Mur­der Shocks Lo­cal Com­mu­ni­ties

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM -

Mer­rick Belk­nap writes: “I first be­came in­ter­ested in this case af­ter be­com­ing ac­quainted with Joseph Ma­heux of Stanstead. ‘Joe’ was a well­known lo­cal his­to­rian and did much to pre­serve Stanstead’s his­tory. He

first brought the story to my at­ten­tion over fifty years ago and we dis­cussed it many times in the in­ter­ven­ing years. It was his in­ten­tion to write a story about the case , but ‘the fickle fin­ger of fate…..’ I would like to ded­i­cate this con­tri­bu­tion to the mem­ory of Joe Ma­heux, a fine per­son,

ad­mired and re­spected by all who had the priv­i­lege of know­ing him”.
