NASTY!!That's sure him!Strange that he is found at home in the 1910 census in Wellsburg (Series: T624 Roll: 1677 Page: 129) with Albert 16, Lee R 14, and John 10, and that his death certificate has him listed as living in Wellsburg at the time of his death on October 31, 1933.Must have been a big change after the conviction!Wonder how THAT happened!?!
Death certificate # is 12107.Informant is John Chaney of Brilliant, OH.Cause of death stated as "starvation and exposure."Was determined to be demented in 1931.Guess he got what was coming to him after all (considering that he drove poor Mandy mad and abused poor Albert by having him lie at the trial)!
Also interesting to find that Mandy's father was Philip.My grandmother thought it was John Crow.Maybe that's why I couldn't find her in the census (now I have).Strange also that there is a John Crow in Fayette Co., PA, in 1870 and 1880 with children named Leroy, John, and Margaret (and a daughter named something like Saline [hard to read] that I thought might have been Sylvia).The fact that there was no Amanda by 1880 was my tip to its being an incorrect tie.
My guess is that the news article was in the paper in Washington, PA. That's where Independence Twp is located (Washington Co.) and that's where Amanda was born according to her marriage record.
