Descripción Cornell University Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 213 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was Rebecca s son, Thomas, who first realized the victim s identity. His eyes were drawn to the victim s head, and aided by the flickering light of a candle, he clapt his hands and cryed out, Oh Lord, it is my mother. James Moills, a servant of Cornell . . . described Rebecca lying on the floore, with fire about Her, from her Lower parts neare to the Armepits. He recognized her only by her shoes. from Killed Strangely On a winter s evening in 1673, tragedy descended on the respectable Rhode Island household of Thomas Cornell. His 73-year-old mother, Rebecca, was found close to her bedroom s large fireplace, dead and badly burned. The legal owner of the Cornells hundred acres along Narragansett Bay, Rebecca shared her home with Thomas and his family, a servant, and a lodger. A coroner s panel initially declared her death an Unhappie Accident, but before summer arrived, a dark web of events rumors of domestic abuse, allusions to witchcraft, even the testimony of Rebecca s ghost through her brother resulted in Thomas s trial for matricide.Such were the ambiguities of the case that others would be tried for the murder as well. Rebecca is a direct ancestor of Cornell University s founder, Ezra Cornell. Elaine Forman Crane tells the compelling story of Rebecca s death and its aftermath, vividly depicting the world in which she lived. That world included a legal system where jurors were expected to be familiar with the defendant and case before the trial even began. Rebecca s strange death was an event of cataclysmic proportions, affecting not only her own community, but neighboring towns as well.The documents from Thomas s trial provide a rare glimpse into seventeenth-century life. Crane writes, Instead of the harmony and respect that sermon literature, laws, and a hierarchical/patriarchal society attempted to impose, evidence illustrates filial insolence, generational conflict, disrespect toward the elderly, power plays between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, [and] adult dependence on (and resentment of) aging parents who clung to purse strings. Yet even at a distance of more than three hundred years, Rebecca Cornell s story is poignantly familiar. Her complaints of domestic abuse, Crane says, went largely unheeded by friends and neighbors until, at last, their complacency was shattered by her terrible death.
