Really whackey person, Lizzie Borden of Fall River, Mass (1860-1927) was arrested on 8/4/1892 (acquitted= 6/20/1893).
         Andrew Borden he is dead;
        Lizzie hit him on the head.
        Lizzie killed her mother, too--
        What a horrid thing for Liz to do!

                Olive Woolley Burt, American Murder Ballads

        'Cause you can't chop your poppa up in Massachusetts
        Not even if it's planned as a surprise
        No you can't chop your poppa up in Massachusetts
        You know how neighbors love to criticize.

                "Fall River Hoedown" (Lizzie Borden) by Michael Brown, 1952 – see DigTrad)

Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty wacks.
Whe he saw what she had done she gave her father forty one.

She was never convicted.
