There is a channel on YouTube called "The History Guy" which has just now given me information on a second mass murder.  (The first was one that I already knew about.)  This is about a family ax-murdered in 1874 in southern Illinois.  I am searching 1874 newspapers right now, and while I might have found it, a lot historical research is like this: happenstance discoveries.  Gruesome details in “Further Particularsof the St. Clair County, Ill., Butchery,” ChicagoDaily Tribune, Mar. 22, 1874, 1
