Thank you so much Ichaupt. I found these stories through research some time ago and reported it to my family on my fb page. I did not post the results here on ancestry.com. I concur with everything that you said. (same research) Just to add a couple of more details. Nancy B. (Mann) Madan who was sentenced for allegedly shooting her son in law Obadiah Jones in the head with a pistol. Died while in prison due to Consumption which is better known as (tuberculosis). Her husband Lot Jackson Madan 1797-1870 committed suicide by hanging (according to MA death records) Lot Jackson Madan and Nancy B. (Mann) Madan had many many many children. Many of the blood line traced lineage survive to this date.
