Only US President to have personally hanged criminals, Grover Cleveland.|
While he was sheriff of Erie County, New York State, future president Grover Cleveland hanged two murderers: Patrick Morrissey who had been condemned for stabbing his mother to death, and Jack Gaffney, a gambler who had shot a man during a card game.
Cleveland is also the only president to have been re-elected following a defeat and there by served separate, rather that concurrent, terms in office!
