BURTON, Joseph Obituary

One month since Joseph Burton, of Liverpool, Onondaga County, died under circumstances which led friends to believe he had been poisoned. He had lived unhappily with his wife. Lately the family feud had grown so bitter that the woman privately vowed "I'm going to get rid of Joe as soon as possible" and sure enough, her husband died a few days later, giving all evidence of arsenic poisoning. The body was buried. Last week other evidence of poisoning came to light, when the Coroner directed the body to be disinterred and the stomach subjected to a chemical analysis.
