Writing History & Mysteries

When I'm not delving into historical research, I'm planning a character's demise.

R is for ROSALIE Hoag


An excerpt from Bread and Butter The Murders of Polly Frisch
A 19th century murder.

The Hoag(e) family plot. Alabama Center Cemetery. Alabama, NY.

At two o’clock in the afternoon, after Polly picked up Frances and Rosalie, they returned to the farm. While Albert turned out the horses Polly went into the kitchen to make the children some bread and butter.

Albert was not present while the food was being prepared. In Rosalie’s own testimony she said, “After we got home mother gave us some bread and butter. Albert was not there when she gave it to us, he was outdoors.”

Albert came into the kitchen where his two sisters were eating at the table. In reference to the bread and butter Albert said, “They were not small pieces. Frances ate hers all up. Rosalie ate part of hers and laid the rest on the table. Frances ate that afterwards. Mother did not give me any bread and butter; never did that I know of.”

Rosalie had agreed with this saying, “She ate hers, I ate part of mine, Franky [Frances’ nickname] took what I had left and ate it. We went out to play after eating the bread and butter.”

A short time later, while the children were outside playing, the girls suddenly became ill and began vomiting. Seven-year-old Rosalie, who had only eaten part of her bread, was sick for only a short time. Frances, on the other hand, become violently ill.

I randomly downloaded this on my iPad when I hit the wrong button being a bumble fingers, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've never read fanfic before. It was pretty good. But like many other people, it still can't compare to J. K. Row...
