Illinois Genealogy Trails

Illinois Executions
(prior to Lethal Injection)

Perhaps not the happiest topic in the genealogical world, but you never know where you might find that lost individual. We all have at least one person in our tree who seemed to have just vanished off the face of the planet. Maybe you can find yours listed here. Once you find a familiar name, make sure to check the old newspaper microfilms, because you can be sure the execution was reported to the fullest.

Illinois Genealogy Trails would like to gratefully acknowledge the source of this information as coming from Rob Gallagher's
BEFORE THE NEEDLES website, which contained the THE HISTORY OF EXECUTIONS IN AMERICA BEFORE LETHAL INJECTION.

The site is no longer online, unfortunately since his site had much more information on this topic from around the country since only the Illinois portion of Mr. Gallagher's site is reprinted here (with his permission :-)



Of the 356 executed Women in the United States prior to lethal injection becoming legal,

two of them were from Illinois:

Elizabeth Reed from Crawford County (read her story on our Crawford county website. The trial was conducted in Lawrence County, which is why she is listed under Lawrence here)

and
Marie Porter from St. Clair



Read about Menard County's only executed person, Charles Houlden
here on our Menard County site.

These are the 348 Executions which have occurred in Illinois prior to Lethal Injection becoming legal:
