Birth: unknown
Vorpommern-Greifswalder Landkreis
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany
Death: Jun. 25, 1875
Thomaston
Knox County
Maine, USA

Louis Wagner rowed out to Smuttynose Island in March of 1873, intending to rob the 3 women left alone, but ending up killing 2 of the 3 with an axe. He was sentenced to death, and hung from the Gallows of the Maine State Prison at Thomaston, now an empty field. He swore he was innocent up till his execution and the Warden at the time absent from the proceedings stated that he felt the man was innocent. In researching a book on Maine's most famous double homicide, I went looking for Wagner and found him buried in the little known restored prison cemetery.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. . . . Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee. Psalms 51:14; 86:5
