Treason and the U.S. Constitituion[edit]

I changed the article to say that the U.S. Constitution requires two witnesses in the charge of treason. It's not something that Marshall made up. (this unsigned contribution was added on 11 July 2006 by

Washington Post article on John Pierre's descendants[edit]

New article today treats his parentage as basically proven/accepted. Someone with more familiarity should review whether there's new information there, or sources that could be cited here. [1] -- Jake (talk) 15:43, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Article for Mary Emmons?[edit]

It feels kind of jarring to go to Mary Emmons but then be redirected to Aaron Burr. I think it would be good to create a separate article for her. For example, the infobox and lead of John Pierre Burr has two links to "Aaron Burr" and "John Pierre Burr", but they both link to the same article. What do you think?

At the moment I don't know that there's enough information about Mary Emmons even to make a stub, unfortunately. The only sources I can find about her are basically passing mentions based on snatches of family traditions that really only amount to guesses at a birthdate, guesses at country of origin and guesses at whether or not she was enslaved. Hopefully more will come to light as the story seems like it's getting attention due to Sherri Burr's work, but until it does, I'm unsure that she merits her own article.
