prisoners were tried: 3 (females)
charged with murder, 2 rape, 3 sacrilege, 1 for an unnatural crime....
Now we're all wondering what a "natural crime" would be?
The actual charge was sodomy and he (Jacob Slacks age 48) was acquitted.
BTW, I don't know if it is the same Samuel Hine or not, but one was sentenced to 7 years transportation in
1818 (Chester July sessions) for larceny
Do you have an age for this Samuel? The one I'm researching would have
been about 20 in 1818.
