Lizzie Borden

Ancestry of
Lizzie Borden

Accused Murderess


Who was Lizzie Borden?

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks;
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.

The murders of Lizzie Borden's father and step-mother occurred on the morning of August 4, 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts at the Borden home. The Bordens were murdered by repeated blows to their heads with a hatchet.

The case received much notoriety at the time due to the extreme violence with which the murders were committed, and the fact that the only suspect was the daughter Lizzie Borden.

Lizzie was tried and acquitted of the murders and historians still argue today over who the real killer was. But be that as it may, the legend of Lizzie Borden is still as popular today as it was over 100 years ago.

Lizzie Borden's famous kin include a number of notable people, including Gail Borden, founder of the Borden Company, and actress Elizabeth Montgomery, who ironically played her cousin Lizzie in the 1975 made-for-tv movie The Legend of Lizzie Borden.
