I am a descendant of John's brother Elisha Dexter b. 18 Sep 1758 CT d. 18 Nov. 1818. The hanging of John was a very unfortunate and sad affair. And, John's wife's maiden name seems to have been Niece.

John is my ancestor. He was hung for murder in Canada. His son and daughter-in-law came to Illinois. I have always seen the spelling of his wife as Mary Jane NIECE, not HIESE. She did not come west with her son.
