ET: Sevier Lewis

Executed today in 1878: Sevier Lewis, who ultimately died either because he was an incestuous pervert or because he was trying to defend his kid from an incestuous pervert.

I’m not really sure what side of the story to believe here. Of course we’ll never know, but either way, the effect this whole thing had on poor Sylvia can only be imagined.

Thoughts, anyone?

    I wonder if maybe the truth was kind of a different story? Maybe Sylvia and Zack were more like boyfriend and girlfriend and the baby was his? And Sevier didn’t like their carrying on on account of them being family?
    In the old days if a baby was born out of wedlock the girl’s parents often took it in and passed it off as their own so its likely they’d do that for Lucy no matter who her father was.

      I hadn’t thought of that possibility.
