Looking for information,news articles etc on the murder of Obadiah Jones on 6-18-1869 in Canton,Ma by Nancy B. (Mann) Madan. She killed Obadiah with a pistol shot to the head and was sentenced to hang on 6-18-1869. Given Clemency by the Governor she was sentenced to life in prison at hard labor where she died of consumption in 1879

Was this Obadiah a relative ??? Her mother was Mary (Polly) Jones.

Thanks
Jan
