CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

LIZZIE BORDEN ANNIVERSARY

Today marks the anniversary of the date in 1893 that Lizzie Borden was declared innocent of the murder of her stepmother and father. To read about Lizzie Borden and to view pictures of the house where the murders occurred, click on LIZZIE BORDEN—A REENACTMENT

Then, read about the hanging of Thomas Cornell Jr., accused—rightly or wrongly—of killing his mother, Rebecca Cornell, in 1673. At the very least, the Portsmouth, Rhode Islanc, family was dysfunctional and contained elder abuse. Rumor has it that this is the only court case in the United States that was decided on the testimony of  a GHOST! Rebecca and her husband Thomas, and Thomas Jr., were ancestors of Lizzie Borden—and the author of this post. To read their story click on KILLED STRANGELY: A NEW ENGLAND MURDER STORY
