Halloween is for The Children!

This is the Hendershot Family of old Franklin, TN. The children’s names were Lily and Ebb. As a Halloween joke, all the kids in the neighborhood were going to get a dummy and pretend to chop its head off. The Hendershot children thought it would be hilarious to actually murder their mother, so when the kids walked up to the door, they got an axe and slaughtered her. Once everyone figured out what they had really done, they called the Franklin town constable, but the kids were long gone by then.

The only picture of them was this photo, taken by a trick or treater. Their mother's body was later found half-eaten. She is rumoured to be buried in two separate graves at the old Franklin Cemetery. One for the body, one for the head!
