From the "Annals of Portsmith" page 194: " May 8th , 1755. Eliphas Dow of Hampton Falls was executed for the murder of Peter Clough of the same place. It appeared upon evidence, that a quarrel had subsisted between them for a long time. On The 12th day of December, 1754, they accidentally met at the house of Noah Dow, where some high words and threats passed between them. Clough challenged Dow to go out of the house to fight & went out himself. Dow followed & as he went out, took up his brothers hoe which stood in the entry, & with it struck Clough a blow on the side of the head which instantly killed him. Dow was arrested & examined before the honorable Meshech Weare & committed to prison in this town (Portsmouth). " At the February term of Superior Court, he was indicted, tried & convicted: and sentence was pronounced upon him that he should be hanged by the neck until he should be dead." Sentence ordered to be executed on March 20, but two reprieves were allowed until May 8, 1755. Eliphas pleaded "strictly self defense" at his trial.
