Yes I thought I recalled mention of the "Murder By Gaslight" blog on here before but when I searched for it earlier I couldn't find it.

Bob Wilhelm's 19th Century crime site is an invaluable tool for the crime researcher...and I'll be posting updates to his site from here from now on.

Greed, jealousy, revenge, obsession – the motives of America’s gas-lit murders are universal and timeless. Yet their stories are tightly bound to a particular place and time; uniquely American, uniquely 19th Century.

Today's article.....The Irish Giant

http://www.murderbygaslight.com/


Ned O’Baldwin was a heavyweight contender in the bareknuckle era of the 1860s and 1870s when a bout would continue until one man was knocked unconscious or the police arrived to shut the whole show down.

List Of Stranglers :



http://www.murderbygaslight.com/


Strangulation is the most intimate form of murder, the killer takes the life of his victim with his bare hands. Perhaps this is why it is used so often to dispatch loved ones and family members.

Here, in chronological order, is the Murder by Gaslight strangers hall of fame:


The Minister and the Mill Girl. - 1831
Sarah Cornell was found hanging in a barn in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Was it murder or suicide?
Cup of Affliction. - 1847
Mary Runkle's “cup of affliction,” was filled with tragic deaths of four family members and the suspicion that she was responsible.


An Unfortunate Organization. - 1845
A phrenologist determined that Reuben Dunbar had “an unfortunate organization” in which his moral faculties were not sufficiently large to balance his animal propensities. The diagnosis may have been influence by the fact that Dunbar had been convicted of strangling his two young stepbrothers.
The Bond Street Tragedy. - 1857
After Dr. Harvey Burdell was found in his office strangled and stabbed fifteen times, 31 Bond Street was shown for what it was—a hotbed of greed, lust, intrigue and depravity.
Little Mary Mohrman. - 1868
“Little Mary Mohrman,” as she was known by all, was described as “one of those sunny-haired, bright-eyed, sylvan-like children, whose innocence, one would think, could soften the hardest soul.” This sentiment would be tested and proven horribly false.
The Northwood Murderer. - 1872
When a drifter came to town and committed murder, he was likely to get away without capture and was prone to kill again. But every now and then a wandering killer was caught and his whole bloody itinerary made public. Such was the case of the Northwood Murderer.
The Tanyard Murder. - 1874
A feud within Cincinnati’s German community would lead to the brutal murder and illegal cremation of Herman Schilling.
The Hart-Meservey Murder. - 1877
Sarah Meservey was strangled to death in her home in Tenant’s Harbor, Maine. Was Nathan Hart falsely accused?
"Thus She Passed Away." - 1880
When George Wheeler's mistress planned marry someone else he was faced with a dilemma: he could not marry her himself and he could not bear to see her wed to another. The solution he chose pleased no one.


"She Died in Defense of Her Honor." - 1886
A web of circumstantial evidence around James Titus as the man who raped and murdered Tillie Smith. The public story soon became the official story, but there is a good possibility that none of it was true.
The Long Island Murders. - 1883
A series of violent home invasions on Long Island in 1883 left two people dead and four more seriously injured. The community was thrown into a state of confusion with at least a dozen false arrests, two perjured eye-witnesses, a false confession, lynch mobs, a jail break, and for a time, two independent and equally valid lines of inquiry that could not be reconciled.

"Live Free or Die" is the motto of the great state of New Hampshire. Everyone has their own interpretation of those words, here are a few of the worst:
