  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, November 18, 1875 The Standard - Syracuse, New York - Clara F. Horr by her guardian Martin Becker against William H. Horr. Order for alimony, and support during pending action. Action for divorce, Henry A. Brainard, attorney.

      Newspaper Article - Saturday, June 3, 1876 Utica Morning Herald - In special terms, William H. Horr vs Clara F. Horr, Decree of divorce granted to plaintiff on the ground of adultery on the part of the defendant. Certified to Oswego county.

      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, October 7, 1885 - Madison Observer - Results Of Having A “Good Time” - William Horr, a young farmer, living near Oneida, came to that village last Thursday. There he met James Wakefield, living on the flats north of the village. The two proceeded to have a “good time,” finally bringing up at Wakefield’s house, where Horr was introduced to Mrs. Wakefield. The three subsequently went to Oneida Castle. Some time after midnight Wakefield and his wife left Horr, the latter being asleep at the time. Upon waking, Horr missed his lap robe and all his money. He procured a warrant for Wakefield, who was arrested, and the robe found in his possession. Mrs. Wakefield admitted that she took the robe, giving as an excuse that Horr owed her $5, and she wanted her pay. She was sentenced to the penitentiary for six months, and her husband held for trial in $1,000 bail.

      Newspaper Article - October 10, 1885 Oneida Free Press - Depravity - That any person so depraved and so waning in self-respect as James Wakefield would have been denied stoutly before the developments of yesterday. Home is, or should be, the most sacred place on earth. The wife’s honor should be protected by her husband defended, if need by his own life. When a man deliberately bargains away his wife’s honor, as the testimony in this case shows, he is lost to decency and should be driven from among his fellowmen. When the father of a family, as in the case of William H. Horr of Munnsville leaves his family and becomes a party to a bargain in which he takes to himself the wife another man for licentious purposes he deserves the same treatment. The above is a mild way of putting a most disgraceful and dirty case before our readers. The case came before Esq Beal on yesterday. Mrs. Wakefield plead guilty to stealing a horse blanket from Horr, saying that she was not paid for services and that she took it to keep till he paid. She was sent to the Onondaga Penitentiary for six months. James Wakefield stood trial and a jury was summoned. He was found guilty and sentenced to the Onondaga Penitentiary for a term of six months and to pay a fine of fifty dollars or serve an additional fifty days. A complaint was lodged against Horr the prosecutor in the case for public intoxication and he will probably accompany them or follow soon for the same term.

Horr, Sr., 82, was held at the family home here Tuesday at 2 pm, the Rev. George F. Shepard of the Methodist Episcopal church officiating. Interment was made in Hillside Cemetery.
