This man was responsible for the deathsof innocent people. His own g-great grandson was ashamed of his ancestor's actions.

To my 10x great uncle:RIP--Hard to fully understand the times without living through them. Even thought you sentenced others of my ancestors to hang, I try to realize it was driven by the fears of the day.
