Can anyone please help me find out some information on prison records for the state prison in Windsor. A Stephen C. Wyman born March 1845 was in this prison from at least 1890-1900 he died in 1903. He was married to Mary Margaret Fuller. I would like to find out why he was there and for how long. I've searched over everything and can't find anything out except what the federal 1900 census says and the 1890 veterans census. Please help. Thank you.

Do you have just the records on Wyman or the Prison itself? I'm asking because I may have a possible relative that was a convict in 1870 - John Lethbridge, age 16.

In a newspaper aricle dated Dec. 10 1902, Stephen C. Wyman
was conditionally pardoned by the governor.

excerpt:

At the June term of the Windsor County Court in 1884, Stephen C. Wyman was convicted of murder of the 2nd degree and was sentenced to life imprisonment at hard labor at the state prison. The prison trustees recommended the pardon.
Wyman is 57 years old, a veteran of the civil war, and badly broken in health. He is still suffering from an
injury at the Battle of The Wilderness.

In another news article dated 14 August 1884, Mrs. Stephen Wyman committed suicide in Andover,Vermont by hanging.
Her husband was convicted of murder last spring, sentenced to life, and since then Mrs. Wyman has become insane.

Thank you, do you know of any way I could also find out if he was there in 1880? His wife and children were at the poor farm in Poultney at that time and he was not there. Thank you for your help.
