last one for tonight

10 June 1807
On Wednesday June 10 1807 was executed at the Cross Glasgow pursuant
to his sentence, at the last Circuit Court, Adam COX for the murder of
his infant son. His body was immediately after delivered to the
Professor of Anatomy for dissection. He behaved in the Court Hall and
on the scaffold with great decency and apparent contrition, and fully
acknowledged his guilt of the crime for which he suffered. He was born
in a small village near Dungannon in the county of Tyrone Ireland. He
has left three children.
