    Jen, the family tragedy:
    Emma did marry Franklin White.
    She was found dead at the bottom of a water well at the young couple’s home.
    Franklin said, “Emma was depressed and threw herself down the well.”
    Peter & Julia said,”Emma was not depressed. She would not kill herself. Franklin murdered her.”
    What a mystery! Could we find old records of the inquest?

    I remembered that there was something “fishy” about her death, but wow! You’re right – there might be some sort of court records that we could find. That would be interesting to read!ReplyCancel
