Sarah Wilson1

Marriage*5 December 1890She married, we believe, this John R. York, son of Madison York and Lucinda Esteridge, on 5 December 1890 in Carthage, Jasper County, Missouri. It was John's second marriage and he was 46 years of age. We've learned nothing at all about Sarah except the name recorded for her marriage, and wonder if Wilson was her maiden name or a married name.1
Research Notes*Sarah and John's marriage did not last very long, although whether by divorce or Sarah's death we don't know. John would marry his third wife in December of 1896 and we have found no records we can confirm for Sarah, before or after her marriage.1,2,3

Birth*25 September 1846Sarah A. Wilson was born on 25 September 1846 in Salem, Columbiana County, Ohio.1
Marriage*10 June 1869She married William W. Heaton, son of Jacob Heaton and Elizabeth Potts Weaver, on 10 June 1869 in Columbiana County, Ohio.1,2
Occupation*Soon after their marriage, William and Sarah moved to the New York City area where William became a stockbroker. In 1973, he started his own firm named Heaton and Day, and with his financial success, he and Sarah moved to upscale Scarsdale, Westchester County, New York.1
Census US 1880*15 June 1880Sarah A. and William W. Heaton were enumerated on the 1880 census taken on 14 and 15 June 1880 on Lothar Avenue, Bayonne, Hudson County, New Jersey. William was 35 years of age and a stock broker, and Sarah was 33 years of age. Their two children were enumerated with them in 1880. Maud was 8 years old, and William was 5, and both had attended school within the census year. Two servants resided in the Heaton household in 1880. Amelia Roderick was 18 years old and Bridget Murphy was age 25. Also enumerated with the family were Henry G. Moore, age 35, and his wife Maria K., age 30, who were lodgers.3
Census US 1920*14 January 1920Sarah and William W. Heaton were enumerated on the 1920 census taken on 14 January 1920 on Weaver Street, Scarsdale, Westchester County, New York. William was 74 years of age and a stockbroker, and Sarah was 73 years of age. They owned their house free of mortgage and employed a nurse, a trained attendant, a waitress and a chambermaid. We suspect Sarah's health may have been failing. On the 1930 census, William was identified as a widow.4

Mother*Sarah Jane Wine2 b. 1837, d. b 27 Aug 1883
Birth*12 September 1857David Wine was born on 12 September 1857 in Braxton County, Virginia.2
Name VariationHis full name was David Hanson Wine.2
(Stepson) Census US 187018 August 1870David Wine was enumerated as David Williams on the 1870 census taken on 18 August 1870 in the household of his mother and stepfather, William H. Williams, near the Braxton Court House Post Office, Lincoln, Braxton County, West Virginia. David was 13 years old.3
(Friend) MurderThe savage murder of Jemima Green, which occurred on 20 May 1875 near Sutton, Braxton County, produced, according to the newspapers, "a great deal of excitement." For at least four years after her murder, news articles covering her brutal killing, and the resulting multiple arrests and trials of the accused, were published in West Virginia newspapers. Some of the individuals mentioned in the news articles, as events developed, included Isaac Lewis Perkins, Samuel Ellis Perkins, David Wine, Elijah Perkins, Mariah Jane (Chapman) Hines, Isaac W. Hines, Sarah Jane Mollohan, Elizabeth (Rogers) Mollohan, William B. Young and Sarah Jane (Wine) Wine Williams. We've transcribed several of the news articles and placed them here with Jemima.4
(Friend) IndictedAugust 1875 At the August 1875 term of the Braxton County, West Virginia, Circuit Court, the Grand Jury indicted cousins, Isaac Lewis Perkins and Samuel Ellis Perkins, and their friend, David Wine, for the murder of Jemima Green. Newspapers reported on 30 August that the parties, with one exception, were in jail.5
(Friend) Court ActionSeptember 1875A preliminary examination of the men indicted for the murder of Jemima Green was held in September 1875 before the Braxton County Court. One newspaper reported that "no legal proceedings for years have attracted so much attention in this locality and called forth such an effort on behalf of both parties." And that "crowds of people daily attended court during the protracted" ten days of examination. It was estimated that about 90 witnesses were examined, and their testimony recorded. At the conclusion of the proceedings, it was decided by the Court that there was sufficient evidence to justify sending the accused men, cousins Samuel Ellis Perkins and Isaac Lewis Perkins and their friend, David Wine, on for future trial.6
(Friend) Evidence20 September 1875 On 20 September 1875, after attending the ten day preliminary hearing for the three men indicted for the murder of Jemima Green, a newspaper correspondent writing from Sutton, Braxton County, wrote a summary report of the evidence produced at the examination which was published in his newspaper on 4 October 1875. His purpose was to help his reader "understand the motive and cause of the tremendous legal exertions" he observed at the hearing and to outline some of the leading facts in the case. His summary began with a description of the horrific brutality of the crime as reported in the verdict of murder by the Jury of Inquest. Continuing, he wrote that the victim, Jemima Green, three weeks prior to her murder, had given birth to a child, and that it was rumored that Jemima had identified Elijah Perkins as the baby's father. Although the truth of the rumor was not pursued, evidence was presented that Elijah Perkins, his nephew, Isaac Lewis Perkins and David Wine moved Jemima and her effects, in the night time, to Otter creek, where she was murdered four days later. Provisions, provided by Samuel Ellis Perkins, were delivered to her by Isaac Lewis Perkins. Additional evidence showed that Samuel Ellis Perkins, a son of Elijah Perkins, left his home the night of the murder and returned about 3 o'clock in the morning. He admitted under questioning that he had been to Otter creek that night, and further evidence indicated that his cousin, Isaac Lewis Perkins, had also been away from home that same night. Additional testimony, described in the article as "unimpeachable", showed that David Wine had been away from home that whole night and had been seen on the road both to and from the house where Jemima was murdered.

In addition to his summary of the evidence against the accused, the news article included the author's observations of the ten-day hearing, the crowds of spectators in attendance, and his opinions of the attorneys and witnesses. Our transcription of this complete news article may be found among the others with Jemima.6
Confession*29 November 1875The Wheeling Daily Intelligencer, on 29 November 1875, published an unverified report that David Wine had made a confession implicating himself and others in the murder of Jemima Green. The newspaper also stated they would not give names or particulars until the statement was confirmed. Researcher's Note: We found no follow-up articles regarding David's confession, trial or conviction in any of the West Virginia newspapers we reviewed. We did find him as an inmate at the West Virginia State Penitentiary on the 1880 U.S. Census. Our transcription of this short news item may be found among the other articles with Jemima.7,8
(Friend) Trial6 December 1875A special term of the Circuit Court for Braxton County was held on 6 December 1875 for the trials of Samuel Ellis Perkins, David Wine, and Isaac Lewis Perkins. The trial of Samuel Ellis Perkins was the first to be heard before a jury. The examination of the State's witnesses began after it was first proven that Jemima Green had been murdered. The testimony of Mariah Jane (Chapman) Hines and Marion Nichols proved for the State that a threat was made by the prisoner on the Wednesday prior to the killing on Thursday night. The State next proved an opportunity by the prisoner at the proper time to execute his threat, and submitted several admissions that showed him to be one of the parties to the killing. The State further showed that the prisoner had attempted to remove suspicion from himself by procuring another party to charge a third person with the crime. This last evidence was the testimony of Mariah Jane (Chapman) Hines, who was, at the time of the murder, the paramour of the prisoner, Samuel Ellis Perkins, but had been abandoned by him sometime in July when he, the prisoner, "took to his bosom another woman." The position of the Defense was that Chapman, who had since married Isaac Hines, perjured her testimony to get even with her former lover. We note here that the newspaper article had some very unkind things to say about Mariah's character.

The trial lasted nine days, with 80 witnesses examined, and the Defense's case included a complete alibi proven by the prisoner and a direct contradiction of all the important facts proven by the State. Which side was telling the truth? The jury decided it was the State when they found the prisoner, Samuel Ellis Perkins, guilty of murder in the first degree. They also found that he should be punished by confinement in the Penitentiary.

The prisoner then moved the court to set aside the verdict of the jury and grant him a new trial on the grounds that the verdict was contrary to law and the evidence in the case, and on the ground that a member of the jury had expressed an opinion previous to the trial, and on account of newly discovered evidence. Five affidavits were offered to the court by counsel for the Defense, among them the sworn statement of Sarah Jane Mollohan, the second paramour of the prisoner who had recently ousted Mariah Jane (Chapman) Hines. Mollohan's statement was that she, Sarah Jane Mollohan, her mother, Betsy Mollohan, and William B. Young, all residents of Little Otter creek, had together visited the home of Jemima Green on the night of the murder at about 2 o'clock. Her statement was that she, Sarah Jane Mollohan, stood at the door and witnessed her mother, Betsy Mollohan, and William B. Young bludgeon Jemima Green to death.

Although her terrible statement was not readily believed, the Court decided it was just as worthy as the story of Mariah Jane (Chapman) Hines, and possibly more so from the fact she admitted to being one of the murderers herself. The Court, after further examination of the case, set aside the verdict of the jury and granted Samuel Ellis Perkins a new trial. And on his petition, and the petitions of the other two prisoners, Isaac Lewis Perkins and David Wine, ordered a change in venue in each of the cases to the Gilmer Circuit Court. Our transcription of this complete news article may be found among the others with Jemima.9
Indicted*December 1875At the December 1875 term of the Braxton County Circuit Court, David's mother, Sarah J. Williams, was indicted for the murder of Jemima Green. The news article reporting her indictment speculated that the next Grand Jury would probably add three or four more people to the number charged. Our complete transcription of this short news item may be found among the other articles with Jemima.9
(Friend) Evidence3 March 1876 On 3 March 1876, Sarah Jane Mollohan, who was then very sick and expecting to die, made her oath for the Court that her former statement of 20 December 1875 was entirely false and that she had been hired, and scared into making it by the Perkins family. Sarah Jane, who had been identified at the first trial of Samuel Ellis Perkins as his paramour, had made an oath for the Court at that first trial stating that the murder of Jemima Green had been committed in her presence by her mother, Betsy Mollohan, and William B. Young. Our transcription of this short news item may be found among the other articles with Jemima.10
(Defendant) Court Action27 March 1876The Western Democrat reported on 27 March 1876, without printing any of their names, that the persons charged with the murder of Jemima Green had been brought into court in Gilmer County to make an application for bail. Previous news articles had identified Samuel Ellis Perkins, Isaac Lewis Perkins, David Wine, Elijah Perkins and Sarah J. Williams as the individuals charged with the crime and, after the court overruled their application, they were remanded to jail. Our transcription of this short news item may be found among the other articles with Jemima.10
(Son) Court Action15 January 1877The Weston Democrat of 15 January 1877 reported that, in the case of the State vs. David's mother, Sarah J. Williams, the jury in Braxton County rendered a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree, and fixed her confinement in the Penitentiary for life. The article asked, "Can an accessory be convicted after the principal has been tried and acquitted?" And then suggests that "is an interesting question to Mrs. Williams now, and her lawyers should test it in the Court of Appeals". Our transcription of this short news item may be found among the other articles with Jemima.11
(Son) Court Action22 January 1877 On 22 January 1877 The Weston Democrat published the news that Elijah Perkins, who had been on trial in Gilmer County for the murder of Jemima Green, had been acquitted. The news item also mentioned that Elijah Perkins's trial was the last trial of those charged with the brutal murder of Jemima Green, and that David's mother, Sarah Jane Williams, was the only one who had been convicted. The short article continued with the view, "that some others aided in that murder no one who has heard any of the evidence can have any doubt, but whoever they may be, so far go unpunished, and it is not likely there will be an further investigation of the sad affair." Our transcription of this short news item may be found among the other articles with Jemima.12
(Son) Court Action11 November 1878During the next two years following his mother's conviction for the murder of Jemima Green, her appeals process was moving forward. Shortly after the jury's verdict, she was allowed a writ of order, defined as a legal order from a higher court to a lower court, asking for the records of a case to be reviewed for any mistakes made during the trial. Then, about a year later, in the Spring of 1878, in the State vs. Sarah Jane Wine of Braxton County, certiorari, defined as a court process to seek judicial review of a decision of a lower court, was ordered by the Supreme Court of Appeals. Then, on 11 November 1878, The Wheeling Daily Intelligencer reported that, in the State vs. Sarah J. Williams of Braxton County, the Supreme Court of Appeals had reversed her conviction and ordered a new trial. Our transcriptions of these three short news items, and also an article of review and analysis explaining why the case of the State vs. Sarah Jane Wine "was reversed on the ground that the verdict was not warranted by the evidence", may be found among the other articles with Jemima.13
Census US 1880*June 1880David Wine was enumerated on the 1880 census taken in June 1880 at the West Virginia State Penitentiary, Washington, Marshall County, West Virginia. He was a prisoner, single, 23 years of age, and unable to read and write. He was assigned to work in the prison Whip Shop.8
