The National Museum of the Morgan Horse thanks Mr. Charles Edward Dewey III, of Bennington, Vt, who graciously donated the colorful Walloomsac stud poster to the Museum recently. His grandfather, Charles Edward Dewey, was a prominent member of the Bennington community, known for his fine farm, and selfless service to the town as Selectman and school trustee. Mr. Dewey's grandfather bred many fine Morgan trotters and carriage horses, including Walloomsac.
From "Wallace's Monthly", Vol. VI, September, page 616:

Trustee; g. d. not traced. Bred by C. E. & E. Dewey, as was also his sire, Bennington, Vt, and still their property."
