Perhaps Martha didn't commit the murder - she did vow until her death that it was her husband who did it. It is possible her husband caught her with the other man and when a child was born 9 months later, William concluded it was not his. Somewhere in the records there has to be a more complete history of this case. Did you look at the online records for the Library of Virginia?

We can't be responsible for what our ancestors did - any more than our descendants will be responsible for what we do!!
