In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in miserable poverty. While it was uncommon for someone raised in such conditions to be literate … Betty was!
She taught her only son to read and write and would constantly remind him that only money could bring him happiness in life. And, when he was old enough … she encouraged him to leave Roscommon and find his fortune – in America!
Years later, one dark evening … a tall, well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door looking for a place to stay. Betty let him in, and later that night, as he slept … Betty crept into his room, and murdered him for his money!
As Betty rifled through the man’s things … to her horror … she discovered the ‘stranger’ was, in fact … her son!
Overcome by the shock of her actions, Betty ran screaming into the streets … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial … and was condemned to death – by hanging!
On Execution Day … as Betty and a few other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to personally perform the executions.
Seizing her opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared … in return for hanging the other prisoners – herself!
The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work! “Lady Betty” was so efficient and capable … she was appointed as Roscommon’s Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … and room and board!
