Mary Frances Creighton (July 29, 1899 - July 16, 1936), was a 36-year-old housewife, who along with Everett Applegate, a 36-year-old former American Legion official, were executed in Sing Sing Prison's electric chair, Old Sparky, for the poisoning of Applegate's wife, Ada, in Baldwin, New York on September 27, 1935. She had passed out prior to the execution, and was executed in an unconscious state. Years earlier in New Jersey she had been acquitted in the similar deaths by poison of her brother and her mother-in-law.
