That would be great if you could ask around. I have two court documents (Indictment and Verdict) and two mentions in the Ainsworth Journal on 11 and 25 September 1884.

Edgar Crandall is mentioned in a couple of history sources such as Days of Yore (p. 51) as one of the first deaths in the county. I believe the trial was the first murder trial in the county.

Zachariah Alderman shot Edgar Crandall in May 1883; Crandall died a couple of days later. Alderman was indicted in November 1883 for first degree murder and found guilty of manslaughter in September 1884. I believe Edgar Crandall lived in Johnstown. My ancestor is Sarah Jane (Crandall) Hagerman, Edgar's sister.

I am very excited to hear from you. I just saw that NSHS has reopened and have an ILL request in for the Long Pine Journal for 1883 and 1884 but their holdings are not complete. You can contact me directly. nancy@mbstevens.com
