Message Board Post:
While researching a branch of my Sperry family, I came across a mention of a very sad incident and wondered if anyone has the details. In 1819 in Malone, New York, Mrs. Lyman Sperry poisoned herself and five children. It didn't specify if they were her children or her given name, but just mentioned that she had been unstable for several years. This was most likely the wife of Lyman Sperry, Sr., but which? There are surviving children from that time, but there is a gap. Any information would be appreciated.
