  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Article - Monday, July 26, 1897 Cortland NY Standard - Took Paris Green - Because She Was Arrested Mrs. Horr Attempted Suicide - Phoenix, N. Y. - July 26. - Smarting under the shame of arrest and conviction for brutally clubbing a 10 year old boy boarder, and perhaps crazed with the fear of the death of her little victim and its consequences, Mrs. Frank Horr attempted suicide by eating paris green, and declared her intention of murdering both her children, aged 4 and 5 years, by cutting their throats. The timely arrival home of her husband prevented her doing harm to her offsprings, but she, herself, may dies as the result of the poison self-administered. Mrs. Horr is 23 years old and her husband is employed as a laborer. To add to the family's income Mrs. Horr engaged to furnish board and care for the 10 year old son of Well's Brown, whos wife is dead. The lad told his grandmother of a whipping that he had received at the hands of Mrs. Horr and showed the marks on his body. A doctor was called and dressed the bruises. Justice Crandall issued a warrent for the arrest of Mrs. Horr, who pleaded guilty. The condition of the child was more serious and the justice reserved sentence. Mrs. Horr was allowed to go on parole. When her husband returned from work he found her suffering from the effects of paris green and she confessed having eaten the poison. Physicians were called and by the aid of stomach pumps and emitics her death was prevented, although her condition is critical, as is also the condition of the boy.

      Newspaper Article - Monday, August 2, 1897 Oswego Daily Times - City And Vicinity - Mrs. Nora Horr, who was convicted of assaulting a small boy who was boarding with her at Phoenix, arrived at the county jail today to serve a 60 days sentence.
