The Cleveland Gazette
It is the Cleveland Gazette to the rescue again. I had been trading documents, notes and stories with a cousin. He told me that one our cousins was killed for committing adultery. I excepted that story at face value.
I recently started re-researching the Cleveland Gazette via Genealogy bank and I came across the story of how my ancestor was killed. I have to email the story to my cousin to get his reaction. The story says that my ancestor got into a fight and was shot because he and a co-worker disagreed about how the trash should be collected. According to the article, there were women involved but they were the spouses of shouting men.
