In the fall of 1904, trouble was brewing between Dr. Alfred Silverheels and James Jemison. The two Senecas were living on the boundaries of what is now Letchworth State Park, Castile, NY. The so-called doctor was blatantly carrying on with Jemison's teenaged daughter and one night, the father found a way to take care of the problem. Based on factual events, this historical fiction short story reveals the details of the rather shocking crime. Told through the eyes of Frank Webster, the actual owner of the livery in Castile, NY in the early 1900s, the unfolding drama follows the investigation and trial of Jemison for the murder of Silverheels.
