I would sincerely appreciate any assistance in researching information regarding a 14 y.o female slave named Judith, who, charged with the care of Dr. John Bayne's three children at Salubria located in Oxon Hill, Md., was charged, convicted, and hanged for the poisoning and subsequent deaths of her wards. She was executed in Upper Marlboro on December 6, 1836. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
