The trial of Ira Stout and Mrs. Chas. Littles for the murder of Mr. Littles in Rochester, whose parents lived in Dansville in the house now occupied by J.C. Finn on Perine street, and the conviction of Isaac L. Wood and the sentence to be hung for poisoning his brother D.J. Wood and wife the year previous in this village, were the most important items.
Stout was afterwards hung in Rochester; Mrs. Littles was sent to Sing Sing for seven years, and Wood, who had left the country was found in the far west and brought home by ex-Sheriff James Brewer and tried and convicted, and sentenced to be hung July 5, had been granted a reprieve to July 9. He was afterwards hung at Geneseo, the first execution to take place in Livingston county.
