Emma Davis

Little Murders:
From Defenders and Offenders:

Emma Davis.

This remarkable woman has a mania for administering poison to those whom she thinks have been long enough in this world, and whose departure might benefit herself. Some time ago she was employed in the family, in Malone, N. H., which consisted of a gentleman and his niece. She attempted to poison the niece. Afterwards she was employed as a nurse in a family in Hartford, to care for the husband, and attempted to poison the wife, so she might make a more prominent place for herself.

Defenders and offenders. New York: D. Buchner & Co., 1888.
