Wayne Twp, Monroe Co, Ohio. In July 1885, David Conger beat & hit his wife with a coffee pot & an ax. Crushed her skull, cut her throat & nearly severed her arm. Their 6 children witnessed the attack.She died a few days later. He was convicted & sentenced to life in prison. I have been unable to determine "which" David Conger this was & the name of his wife.The newspapers only refer to her as Mrs Conger.The only David Conger I find on the census in Wayne Twp in 1880 is married to a Margaret. He is the son of Stephen Conger & Mary Piatt.Does anyone know this story about this family?
