Melinda, who lived in Sidney Township near Trenton, was twenty years old, very pretty, and had been spending a few days with Sarah's parents. Dr. King had never met her before. That evening, after King and Sarah had driven Melinda back to the Lawson farm, Sarah told her husband about a peculiar thing Melinda had said to her. Sarah said that Miss Vandervoort had told her she was in love with Dr. King. She had been in love with him from the moment she'd seen his photograph in the Lawson home. She apparently did not respond to Melinda's very forward statement. When Dr. King heard of it, he seemed to just brush it aside as nonsense." 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
  • Note: 24 September 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "But the idea of a beautiful young woman falling in love with his photogrph 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
  • Note: 14 October 1858; Sanford St., Brighton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "On October 14, four days before Melinda wrote her letter, Sarah suddenly became very ill. She suffered from excruciating abdominal cramps, accompanied by violent bouts of vomiting and diarrhea. Of course, her husband was her physician. He told Sarah that she had cholera morbus, which was the nineteenth century term for what is now called acute gastroentritis. He also said she had an ulcerated womb. King prescribed medication for Sarah, administering it himself. Sarah's condition worsened." 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. 41

    "Sarah Ann and William’s marriage seemed rocky almost from the start, and the baby, George Henry King, died at the age of two months and 2 days, which apparently caused more discord. The baby, malformed at birth, died on 18 March 1854, which would make his birth on 16 Jan. 1854. The death date and the age was found on the grave marker in Mt. Hope Cemetery. The inscription carries no mention of the name King; only “son of the above”, which referred to his mother’s name and death date, along with the names of her parents." from the Mitchell, Higgins, Parr and Lawson Book, pg. 249, Brighton Public Library, Sep 21 2013.2
