According to a timeline on the HistoryNet, in 1630, John

Billington, one of the original Pilgrims who came over on the

Mayflower, became the first person in the American colonies hanged

for murder. TheHistoryNet: Today In History: September 30 You

might check your library for a book called, Murder in America, by

Roger Lane. It is a history of murder in America going back to

colonial times.
