CORNELL, Odd, b. 12 Sep. 1897, d. Jul 1979 in San Quentin, CA (SSDI), spent nearly 50 years in San Quentin Prison for murdering his wife and age 14 step-daughter. Finally freed at age 82, he didn't know what to do with himself and wanted back in. Spent a few years outside but working at the prison. (copy of newspaper article with photo)

A correspondent has taken a particular interest in this man, and it appears he was a "lost soul." His real name was probably Herbert Lee Cornell, and he was the son of Thomas Cornell of Washington Co., PA. His wife was named Fairy as was his step-daughter. She threatened to accuse him of rape, and he killed them both. Then, he tried to take his own life but failed. (additional CA newspaper articles)

Does anyone recognize "Odd" now?


CORNELL, Alvan, another "black sheep" candidate, was found guilty at Jamestown, NY in February 1844 of killing his wife by slitting her throat with a razor. A lengthy newspaper article is available describing the trial. Can anyone identify his family?
