To June Shawver:  We have the same ancestor. He is my 10th great grandfather. I have found several articles on this plot...and several say he was actually drawn and quartered, not beheaded as I thought. It's all very interesting and the Squires on my line are traced through the Revolution living in CT and NY.  Email me if you would like!
