  • Notes 
    • Walter Bliss Story was the son of Lewis and Lany Delilah Bliss Story. He never married.

      He had two sisters and one brother (adopted): Barbara Delilah 1844-1922, Charlotte Elizabeth 1847-1921, and Henry Lincoln 1860-1874. (Son of Francis Fayette Story and Harriet Hicks 1828-1867. Adopted by Lewis Story and Nancy T. Stearns. Francis Fayette Story and Lewis Story were 1st cousins.)

      Walter lived on Oakland Road in Georgia, Vermont but he was rarely home. He was often on his route which he covered twice a year with his breeding stallion. People were always glad to see him. He had made many friends. "Walter was a fabulous horse man". In his youth in the '70s he went to Fairfax, Vermont to study for the ministry. He became very ill and had to return home. Walter never returned to study for the ministry but he could recite the Bible verse after verse, chapter after chapter.
