    Hello path:

    Sure, but you'll have to visit the NY State Archives in Albany. Here's what they say they've got:

    B0147. Admission registers for prisoners to be executed, 1891-1946. R .5 cu. ft. (2 volumes)

    These volumes contain summary information on inmates who were sentenced to be executed. They include inmate name, sentencing information, place of birth, age, occupation, marital status, physical description, and information on family and background.

    B0145. Case files of inmates sentenced to electrocution, 1939-1963. R 15 cu. ft.

    These files contain a significant number of records relating to each inmate sentenced to death at Sing Sing. Among other records these files include: warrant of execution; investigation report; notice of appeal; correspondence relating to the inmate; record of past offenses; Sing Sing admission form; receiving blotter; medical examination report; psychologist report; certification of execution; and a post-mortem report.

    B1244. Log of actions relating to inmates scheduled for execution, 1915-1967. R .4 cu. ft. (2 volumes)

    This log tracks events relating to inmates scheduled for execution at Sing Sing. The volume provides name and inmate number, date received, county of sentencing, the week the execution was scheduled, name and address of family, and name of attorney. The log notes date of actions such as: receipt of appeals; receipt of respite or commutation by the governor; notice received from Court of Appeals affirming execution decision; discharge by reversal of judgement; and time execution was performed.

    B1242. Log of actions relating to inmates awaiting execution, 1892-1907. . 3 cu. ft. (1 volume)

    This volume includes names of inmates under a death sentence and dates of actions relating to them. Actions include commutation to life sentence; grant of new trial; died while awaiting execution; escaped; awaiting execution; and disposition of case on reversal of judgement.
