Age 16

The hanging of Rainey Bethea on August 14,1936, in Owensboro, Kentucky was the last pubic hanging in the state and the United States. Anywhere from 15,000-20,000 people showed up for this event. The media was all over the hanging since the Sheriff of Davies county was a female, even though she did not pull levers. Because of the media coverage and the circus it caused, this was the last hanging.

Name Meaning

English, Scottish, and Irish: generally a nickname referring to the color of the hair or complexion, Middle English br(o)un, from Old English brūn or Old French brun. This word is occasionally found in Old English and Old Norse as a personal name or byname. Brun- was also a Germanic name-forming element. Some instances of Old English Brūn as a personal name may therefore be short forms of compound names such as Brūngar, Brūnwine, etc. As a Scottish and Irish name, it sometimes represents a translation of Gaelic Donn. As an American family name, it has absorbed numerous surnames from other languages with the same meaning.
