Twenty-three year old Henry A. Deadmond was executed by hanging for the Wasco County robbery and murder of George Washington Meek and Cranford Isabell. Reports indicate that it took 18 minutes for Henry Deadmond to die after the trap door was sprung.

Eldest surviving child (their firstborn son died in infancy) of Bluford Deadmond and Emeline (Adams) Deadmond. The Deadmonds had twelve children and the family crossed the plains and arrived in the Oregon Territory in 1853, settling in Lane County. The family operated a ferry on the McKenzie River near Springfield.

Deadmond's was the first legal hanging in Wasco County. His father Bluford Deadmond and younger brother William "Riley" Deadmond, both of Eugene, Oregon had traveled to Wasco County to testify for the defense.

Almost one year later, on 10 Feb 1866, 21-year-old Riley Deadmond was shot and killed during an altercation in the Long Tom Saloon on Willamette Street in Eugene.

Bluford and Emeline Deadmond and four of their children: William Riley, Mary Imelda, Elizabeth J. and Joseph are all buried in Gillespie Cemetery in Eugene, Oregon.
