The Vermont Journal, September 8, 1922
After and absence of 58 years, William Morey of Marshfield, Mass., visited Windsor on Sunday and Monday of this week and called on friends, one of whom he had not seen since leaving here as a lad of eight years. At the outbreak of the Civil war Mr. Morey's father, Charles Morey, was living in the old Gay house on State Street and was keeper in the Vermont state prison, where he had been employed for many years. His son William was born here. The father volunteered for his country's service, was later captured and confined in Andersonville prison. After many months he was released but died on board the transport before reaching home. An uncle, Mitchell Morey, was warden at the prison and resided in the house on State street now occupied by Miss Jennie Penniman and Mrs. Cora Harris. He died about 1872 and is buried in the Old South cemetery. Mr. Morey visited the prison and some scenes of his childhood and declared his intention of returning next year for a longer stay. He was accompanied by his daughter, Miss Edith M. Morey and relatives, Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Waldorf of Dorchester, Mass.
