    • !SOURCE: R. E. Givens, Richard Cater-Carter of Dover, New Hampshire and Some of His Descendants (Fresno, Calif.: R. E. Givens, 1979), pp. 34-38:
      "[William's wife] came to a tragic end. Her husband [William Deering] usually affectionate, in a sudden burst of passion killed her instantly with an axe. All accounts agree that she was an estimable woman, and that she gave no provocation for the deed. Deering was arrested but escaped, and over come with remorse, soon committed suicide. The murder was regarded by the community with unspeakable horror, and old residents at this day point to the stone, partly rose-colored quartz, which they say was the doorstep of the house, and that the red streaks are the stains of Mary's blood, which nothing can efface. She left seven children, three boys and four girls. Most of the numerous and respectable families of Deering in this region are her descendants."
