Dead reckoning

Recommended Posts

The founder of 'our' branch of Spiritualism Joanna Southcott died in 1814.

Her rather whiffy body had to be removed by force as the believers were in two minds, either she was in trance or she was about to be reborn ( in the same body).

She was as dead as a doornail.

The official death date is given as the day before her cadaver was removed for burial by the coroner's officers but in fact she'd been 'gone' for some considerable time.
