May Jones

Memories of Wilmot: May Jones

In this documentary May tells stories of growing up, farm life in the early days, the roadway changes when Route 11 came through Wilmot, her 58-year career at New London Hospital, her 3-years as Wilmot Chief of Police, and the argument of how Wilmot is pronounced is finally settled. She retired from her position at the New London Hospital in 2015. (press release)

Two interviews were recorded by Wilmot Historical Society volunteers. The first interview with May was filmed on October 12, 2018 at Barbara Sanborn’s home on Pancake Street and the second interview was on May 5, 2019 at Lindy Heim’s home at 55 Campground Road. Barbara Sanborn was at both interviews and shared her stories as well.
