I Never Missed a Day on the Bench Till..

Isaac Parker painting

I was the Chief Justice of Massachusetts and one of the original High Federalist. I died 3 days after I said I never felt better and never missed a day on the bench. I was to preside over the murder case that inspired the American version of Clue by Parker Brothers. The murder happened 3 months earlier in 1830 and 3 days after Daniel Webster supposedly came to Salem to prosecute the case. Previously I was the judge accusing him of been a traitor in the 1812 War. The Parker Brothers were the grandson of my cousin William Parker.

I suffered typhoid poisoning as Speaker of the House defending Andrew Jackson’s Bank War after he visited Stephen White of Salem. White was the banker behind Senator Daniel Webster who was Secretary of State for President Harrison who died one month into office of typhoid. In my presidency I was against a third national bank and created an Independent Treasury governed by Congress. For this I will be assassinated 3 months after leaving the presidency by typhoid by Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. A doctor who was at the death of Harrison of typhoid was on the river boat where I caught my own dose.

I am Henry Clay

I was one of the three most powerful senators, but you don’t remember me

Why was Jackson Removed from the Twenty?

I am President Andrew Jackson

I am President Andrew Jackson’s. After loosing money on a land deal with no species backing I started the Bank Wars in 1833 which culminated in the collapse of the Second Bank of United States. Another reason was that the British held 70% of the shares in the bank. I fought with James Knox Polk who was the Speaker of the House against Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. I visited Daniel Webster’s banker Stephen White’ s home off the Common in Salem to explain my reasons to him. Soon afterward I suffered an assassination attempt and Polk a typhoid poisoning. In fact after leaving his presidency Polk would die from a typhoid poisoning because he made the Independent Treasury. For my not renewing the charter of the bank, last year I have been removed from the Federal Reserve $20 notes.

Chief Justice Parker and the Game Clue

Who had a Clue…

His grand cousins, the Parker Brothers, would purchase the game Cluedo and rename it Clue because of his mysterious death. The most famous Victorian American Murder was of the privateer Joseph White in 1830. Chief Justice Isaac Parker would die 3 days after saying he never felt better and never missed a day on the bench. It was 3 months since Joseph White was murdered and Parker died the night before the trial. Three days later Daniel Webster came to Salem to be the prosecutor in the murder. Parker was despised by Webster for a hang jury verdict on a libel case resulting from accusations of Webster being a traitor during the Hartford Convention.

Isaac’s cousin William Parker lived off the Salem Common and so did Joseph White who was the victim. William was the Parker Brother’s grandfather and smuggler in Salem. White’s nephew Stephen committed the crime and had others hanged for the murder, under his uncle Joseph’s orders who was dying already.
