Melinda Freeland Vandervoort1,2,3

F, #61591, b. 1837, d. circa 1890
  • Birth*: 1837; Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Date 1839 & location UC per 1861 Census. Date 1837 & location CW per 1851 Census. Date 1838 per "Dr. Billy King" story.2,3
  • Death*: circa 1890; Toronto, York Co., Ontario; "The once-beautiful Melinda took refuge "in the bottle" and died in the late 1800s in an asylum in Toronto, a penniless, lonely old woman." from "Dr. Billy King" by Paul Dalby, found on Cobourg History web site.
  • Census*: 1852; Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; Age 14 at 1851 Census: see John H. Vandervoort2
  • Note*: 23 September 1858; Home of Dr. William Henry King, Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "On September 23, 1858, a friend of the Lawson family, Miss Melinda Vandervoort, visited the King home. Melinda, who lived in Sidney Township near Trenton, was twenty years of age, very pretty, and had been spending a few days with Sarah's parents. Dr. King had never met her before." from 'Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death", in the book "Murder; Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Ed Butts, pg. 38
    "On September 23, 1858, a pretty, flirtatious 20-year-old woman named Melinda Freeland Vandervoort walked into his life and nothing would ever be the same again. Young Melinda decided to visit her occasional friend Sarah King but in the blink of an eyelash she was focusing all of her considerable charms on Dr. King." from "Dr. Billy King" by Paul Dalby, seen on the Cobourg History web site.
  • Note: 24 September 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "But the idea of a beautiful young woman falling in love with his photograph appealed to Dr. King's vanity. Melinda visited again the next day and, at Dr. King's request, stayed until late in the evening. Like many Victorian middle-class families, the Kings had a piano and a melodeon in the parlour. Melinda could play both instruments, and also had a lovely singing voice. She entertained Dr. and Mrs. King with renditions of popular songs, such as "Kitty Clyde", "Old Dog Gray", and "Hazel Dell". Dr. King was soon infatuated with Melinda. Sarah, who could neither play a note nor sing, seemed rather drab in comparison. What's more, Sarah was now about three months pregnent." from "Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death" included in the book "Murder: Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Edward Butts, pg. 38
    "The very next day Miss Vandervoort returned to the King house and this time she stayed for the night." from "Dr. Billy King" by Paul Dalby
  • Note: 4 November 1858; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Sarah King died.
  • Note: circa 20 November 1858; Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; "It was late evening when King reached the Vandervoort farm. John and Elizabeth, Melinda's parents, had never met King before and his reason for coming alarmed them. King said that his wife's body was being exhumed and that soon a warrent for his arrest would be issued. He said there would also be a warrant for Melinda's arrest. He wanted to take her to the United States where they would be safe until the trouble was straightened out. Melinda's parents were reluctant to allow her to go with King, but the fear of her being arrested prevailed. They said she could go with King on the sole condition that the pair go to Melinda's aunt's house in Cape Vincent, New York, a small community on the St. Lawrence River." from 'Dr. William Henry King: A Gradual and Painful Death", in the book "Murder; Twelve True Stories of Homicide in Canada" by Ed Butts, pg. 43
    "A furious Dr. King went immediately to the Vandervoort farm in the township of Sidney where he spent an hour talking to Melinda. Then King took Melinda across the U.S. border to the safe haven of an aunt's house." from "Dr. Billy King" by Paul Dalby
    Note: Who is the aunt mentioned here? An aunt of Melinda or of Dr. King???
