Research Notes

I adopted this. I am researching it compared to Walter-3304. A lot of similarities but a lot of differences too. The Walter family often has several members with the same names and are often conflated erroneously.

Daughter Jane who was killed in a fire at age 3 needs to be added. Have requested being added to her trusted list.

Several people were confused on the profiles. See G2G thread https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/852073/walter-3304-and-walter-3299?show=852073#q852073

  • Newspaper articles on the fire:
Salamanca Republican Press January 16, 1936 page 7 First news of the fire on January 15. Said children were recovering. Said mother was home and discovered the flames. Father was not home.
Salamanca Republican Press January 20 and Olean Times Herald January 20, 1936 both reported Jane died 25 hours after being rescued. It was reported that Mr Walter had received threatening letters. Mother was able to climb out her bedroom window and was rescued by a neighbor before firemen arrived.
Salamanca Cattaraugus Republican January 22, 1936 page 6 2 articles. One a reprise of the article from the 16th and one from the 20th.
Olean Times Herald January 25, 1936 page 6 notice of Inquest into death of Jane.
Olean Times Herald January 25, 1936 page 7 similar to on in the paper listed above.
Salamanca Republican Press January 27, 1936 says Mary Lou needed a transfusion and was doing well after receiving it.
Salamanca Cattaraugus Republican January 29, 1936 says it was murder and that Mary Lou survived while Jane was killed. 3 fires set in home at 441 Front Street in Jamestown in different places. One in kitchen lit drawing by 7 year old Mary Lou had done at school. One in basement and one in a hall closet. Fire was set Jan 15, 1936.
Olean Times Herald January 29, 1936 page 4 Coronor rules Jane's death murder.
Salamanca Republican Press February 3, 1936 page 8 fires set by unknown perpetrator(s).
Salamanca Cattaraugus Republican February 5, 1936 page 6 same as one above
Olean Times Herald February 15, 1936 page 6: Grand Jury secret meeting on Jane Cheney Walter murder. It said the Grand Jury returned 2 secret indictments, 1 true bill and 1 no bill. A true bill is an indictment which has been presented to a grand jury and endorsed as valid. When the grand jury determines that an indictment is a true bill, it means that the grand jury believes that the charges have merit and the accused should be brought to court to answer to them. "No bill" is a legal term that indicates that a grand jury has decided that there is not enough evidence to place a criminal suspect on trial in court. Some jurisdictions use a grand jury to determine whether a suspect should face a criminal trial. A grand jury is a group of people selected randomly from the community. A secret indictment made by the grand jury, formally charging the accused of a crime, is kept sealed until the accused has been arrested, notified of the charges, or released from jail pending trial.
