Coffee and a Good Book: Murder on Long Island

Sunday, March 3, 2019

1:00 pm to 3:00 pm


In the mid-nineteenth century, James Wickham was a wealthy farmer with a large estate in Cutchogue, Long Island. In 1854, Wickham got into an argument with one of his workers, Nicholas Behan, after Behan harassed another employee who refused to marry him. Several days after Behanís dismissal, he crept back into the house in the dead of night. With an axe, he butchered Wickham and his wife, Frances, and fled to a nearby swamp. Behan was captured, tried, convicted and, on December 15, became one of the last people to be hanged in Suffolk County.
