I was curious to know if any information had been passed down in the family regarding the murder of L.A. Botkin's wife Rebecca (Keith-Young) Botkin(second wife I assume - married around 1909)? They had adopted a daughter, Helen Botkin, and according to the Chariton paper, Helen's beau murdered Rebecca at the Botkin home.

The Keiths are my husband's family. He is not a direct descendant of Rebecca Keith (but is of her brother). It is a story I'm very curious about.
