WHAT DID JOSHUA SPOONER DO?
Joshua was an abusive man, according to Bathesheba and no amount of money could make her see past that. So on the night of March 1,1778 she enlisted two other soldiers to help Ezra beath Joshua to death and throw him down the well.
BATHESHEBA\’S LOVER WAS ONLY 16!
Her lover couldn\’t kill Joshua, even though she gave him the poison to do it and opportunities more than once. So she enlisted the help of two British soldiers who were AWOL. They gladly accepted her invitation, she told Ezra who came to help.
She was convicted, claimed she was pregnant and was given a examination. They did not find evidence and hung her. She was the first woman in America to be executed after the Declaration of Independence was signed.
So keep thee from the Evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Neither let her take thee with her eyelids. There are a thousand dangers, that poor young wretches are in by reason of the snares & traps which are everywhere laid … particularly the poor beardless youth not quite 18.
