ADDISON COUNTY COURT-
Louis Purinton Found Not Gullty
The case of the State vs Louis C.
Purinton of Starksboro, charged with
the killing of Milo Wright at Starks
boro in June, 1912, was on trial in the
county court when our report was
closed last week. This case developed
into the record of a family broil be
tween the John Wright family, consist
ing of John Wright, himself, his wife,
Sarah Wright, his son, Milo Wright,
his son-in-law, Nixon Thompson, and
his daughter, Minnie, wife of Nixon
Thompson on the one side and the Pur
inton family on the othcr side. For
about 13 months Morris Russell and
wife had lived on sufferance o both
f amilies to the feud in a certain not
very valuable house in Starksboro to
which the Wrights and the Purintons
claimed possession by various conflicting
deeds running back for about 40 years.
On the day of the unfortunate occur
rencc the Uussells were moving out to
other quarters and it transpired in the
testimony for the defense that they had
cngaged the respondent andhisbrother,
Linley J. Purinton and Edwin Purinton,
to assist in the removal, and their
father, John Purinton, was there taking
caro of the 11-months old Russell baby.
John Purinton was 76 years on his last
Nixon Thompson, the son-in-law, had
gone with hammer and nails to repair a
fence near the premises in dispute
and his wife had passed the house with
him on her way to a nearby berrying
lot. In passing the Russell house they
discovcred that something was happen
ing there and when in the lot they
found Milo Wright, the victim. They
talked things over with him and tho
Thompsons came back and halted near
a barn at the Russell place. After a
short time Nixon sent his wife to her
father's house to gather the clan and
tho result was that John Wright and
his son, Milo, and his wife, Sarah,
