INDEX

[338] Originally listed (for several years) as Alphaeus "Alfred" Phillip H. Handspiker, which may or may not be correct. On his gravestone his name reads, simply Alphaeus E. Hanselpacker. The question then arises, was there another Alfred, middle name Phillip, born in the Digby area and with whom confusion has reigned over the years? I believe that is quite possible, but, with as many "middle names and initials" as I've seen with Alphaeus, he could have just had a lot of names!

SPECIAL NOTE: There has been much confusion in the children of John Phillip H. and Alphaeus Phillip H. over the years. Based on multi-angle research, the children listed in John P.'s obituary, include Emma, born 1900, married a Thibodeau (or variant). Thus, Emma, who does NOT appear in any records except possibly poorly researched ones, (no Census, no "Vital" records), is NOT a member of THIS family, but is the daughter of John Phillip H. Though, surely, records that show the name, Emma Hanselpacker, in St George area are referring to Emma Kay Hanselpacker, wife of Alphaeus.

Seen as Alfred, Alphaeus, Alpheus, Alfy and Phillip. All being the same man! Much of corrected family information taken form 1901 Canadian Census for Tiverton, Digby County, NS, Canada (Page 8, lines 27-31)

Interestingly enough, when I first found a death record on the New Brunswick archive site, showing the following: Hanselpecker, Alphaeus, Male, Charlotte County, died 8-May-1925, I was very skeptical. However, based on records with his childrens' names on them, as well, I was led to believe that Alphaeus not only left Nova Scotia for New Brunswick, but, adopted the New Brunswick spelling variation of the name, in the process. Most likely doing so, fully knowing that the Handspiker and Hanselpacker lines were descended from the same New Jersey family. He likely made the change just as he married Emma or shortly before.

Mark Freeman - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~markfreeman/carrsara.html
Has the following children listed for "Alfred" - Frank H. (b. 1890), Emma (marr. Jesse Thibeau), Philip, Violet and Ruby. No Carrie and no William. He also has Kay Emma's b.d. as 1864 (likely from a Census). He also shows "Alfred's" date of death as 7-Mar-1925 in Yarmouth, NS! The date is CLOSE, but is not right and the place is not correct for Alphaeus, but IS correct for John Phillip H. My thinking is that Mark may have fallen for misinformation which is not uncommon, thanks to the "Phillip Phenomenon" as I call it. Not only has it caused much confusion between Alfred Phillip and Alphaeus, and John Phillip Hanslepacker, it has done so with the Hanselpacker family for years. The whole mess of Philip M and Philip ? with the Slipp women and the Mary Ann Starkey... just another "Phillip Phenomenon".

Notes received from Kenneth Hanselpacker, confirming my suspicions:

"My father's name was Merven, his father's name was William. William's father's name was Alphaeus. When Alphaeus married in 1889, he did so under the name Handspiker. However, when he died, on 8-May-1926, he was buried under the name Hanselpacker. I can't seem to find out WHY the name was changed or by who. Alphaeus had three children (again... Emma being the one in question, though Merven may have also been limited by older records and/or incomplete ones), Frank - who went to Nova Scotia and kept the name Handspiker, Carrie, who married a Thorne and stayed in St. George (and, of course, William)." (Feb 2002)

So, the information about his death in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, may be another Alfred, or, merely an "A. Handspiker" who passed around the same timeframe? Yet again, it could merely be that his death was recorded in both provinces, as he had children in NS and NB at the time of his death.

It seems Alphaeus and family (w/ Emma, Frank and Carrie) was living in Lubec, Washington County, Maine, USA, during the 1910 Census. They resided on Washington Street. Oddly enough, though they SHOULD be listed with the family in 1910, William K. is not shown in the ONLINE record. However he did appear in the 1901 Census of Tiverton so he could have "been at a friend's house", or the record online does not reflect the actual record. "Alfy" was still living at home for the 1881 Canada Census, in Tiverton, with Ross and Ruth, he was then listed as 24 years of age.

Another source: http://members.tripod.com/~GenNB/murders.htm lists those sentenced to death for committing murder and Alphaeus appears as a "victim" as follows:

ARSENAULT, Alfred, male,17. Victim: Hanselpecker, Alpheus. 1925/05/08; Bethel, N.B. (Charlotte co.) Life in Dorchester Pen. (indicating this Arsenault had a good lawyer if listed on a "sentenced to death" page and ended up with a Life sentence.)

JOURNEY THROUGH TIME
SAINT CROIX COURIER--EDITION SEPTEMBER 17, 1925

Verdict of guilty readily reached in Hanselpacker (Murder)

That he found traces of human blood on portions removed from the coat of Alfred Arsenault, the youth charged with the murder of Alpheus Hanselpacker, aged storekeeper, of Bethel, near here, on May 8 last, was the evidence given by Dr. H.L. Abramson of St. John, provincial pathologist and bacteriologist, when the trial was begun before Mr. Justice Byrne.

Several other witnesses testified, among them Dr. H.I. Taylor, coroner, of St. George, who performed the postmortem examination and who told of the several wounds on the skull, any one of which, he said, would be sufficient to cause death. The Crown, which is represented by J. B. McNair of Fredericton, has still about thirty witnesses to call and it is unlikely that the conclusion of the case will be reached before the end of the week. E.R. McDonald of Shediac is appearing for Arsenault.
The prisoner eats and sleeps well and shows no ill effects of his four month confinement in jail.
The following jury were sworn to try the case, George McVicar, George Maxwell, Willard Harmon, Herbert H. McLean, Wallace Boyd, Herbert E. Fraser, Frederick Steen, Edgar Banford, Frederick Steen, Samuel Hall, Edward Devlin, and Alexander D. Heron.

The first witness called for the Crown was Sergeant Roix, who lives at Bethel, 15 miles from St. Andrews. He said he had known Hanselpacker for 12 or 14 years. He lived 200 yards from witness on land sold by witness to him on which Hanselpacker moved a building where he opened a shop.
In passing Hanselpacker's store he saw the key in the front door and, going along the west side of the store, found the lifeless body of Hanselpacker 10 feet from the store, face downward in a pool of blood. The hands were stretched out and one foot over the other. Witness went over to Mr. Fisher's and told her.(sic)

JOURNEY THROUGH TIME
SAINT CROIX COURIER--EDITION SEPTEMBER 24, 1925

The circuit court closed long session

The closing session of Circuit Court at St. Andrews came Friday afternoon, Mr. Justice Byrne finding it necessary to attend St. John County Circuit on Tuesday.

It had been a long session, lasting the better part of two weeks, and had cost the county heavily, there having been much criminal business and no civil cases.

Alfred Arsenault, found guilty of the murder of seventy year old Alpheus Hanselpacker at Bethel was sentenced by Judge Byrne to be hanged on Jan. 1, 1926. The prisoner did not change countenance.
