Texas Executions
and Legal Hangings

NOTE: Please see additional listing


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.

Texas has executed 755 people between 1819 and 1964.

8 of these execution were prior to Statehood (December 29, 1845), 747 since.

Ship Captain George Brown was the first person executed in Texas. He was hanged for Piracy in November, 1819 in Galveston.

Jane Elkins, a female slave, was the first woman executed in Texas. She was hanged for murder sometime in 1854 in Dallas County.

Chipita Rodrigues, a Hispanic female innkeeper was the last woman executed in Texas. She was hanged for Murder-Robbery on November 13, 1863 in San Patricio County.

The only other woman executed was Lucy, a slave owned by Dougherty, who was hanged for murder on March 5, 1858 in Galveston.

Joseph Johnson Jr., a Black parolee, was the last executed. He died in the electric chair on July 30, 1964 for a murder in Harris County.

Hanging was the primary method of execution until the electric chair took the lives of 5 African-American murderers on February 8, 1924. They were Charles Reynolds (Red River County), Ewell Morris and Melvin Johnson (Liberty County), George Washington (Newton County) and Mack Mathews (Tyler County).

The 755 executions represents an average of 5.2 executions a year.

There were 390 Hangings, 361 Electrocutions and 4 Shootings.

Listed here are the "pre-lethal injection" executions:

NOTE: CORRECTION AND ADDITION SENT IN BY BERT KOCH:

There is another individual not listed on your Texas Hangings.  He was Harold Leslie Walker.  It was on May 10, 1921 in Harris County.  For murder.  His death certificate reads H.L. Walker and death by legal hanging.  Houston Chronicle the next day headlines say “Walker Goes to the Gallows”.  He was my GG Grandfather…
