side note: "Wesley" as he was called was murdered by a young man, Lemuel Rathbone, after a series of misadventures involving the attention of a young lady. "Lem" came up behind him with a knife and cut an artery behind the knee and he bled to death. His brother, Charles, witnessed the incident. Wesley's father, Joseph Warren Burright brought suit against Lem for murder, but Lem was staying with Judge W. P. Williams, at the time, and had the judge's influence on his side. Lem was acquitted and left town. A newspaper article of the event said, "...public opinion was that the murder was justifiable".

[I wonder how it can be justifiable to stab an unarmed man in the back of the leg?]
