Mrs. Stillwell and her daughter


Mrs. Amos Stillwell, whose husband was murdered in his bed in late December 1888, was considered a suspect in his death, but was not convicted of any crime. This sketch, which was published in the San Francisco Chronicle on April 16, 1895, represents Mrs. Stillwell and her daughter.

In the year 2000, Chase Hickman, a Hannibal attorney, edited a previously written book about the sensational murder, added footnotes and provided it in a digital format that is available via the Hannibal Free Public Library's website.
