I wrote about the execution of my direct ancestor Thomas Cornell Jr when I first came upon his story. I still have not managed to quite wrap my head around the events that happened during this strange period in the family history.

Did Thomas Cornell Jr burn his elderly Mother alive while he and his family ate dinner in the very next room or did various forces conspire to have him wrongfully executed?
