  • Notes 
    • ||||Mary and her sister Rebecca were among those accused at the Salem Witchcraft Trials and put to death by hanging on Gallows Hill. From her prison cell, she wrote:

      "...seeing we are unable to plead our own cause, nor is counsel allowed to those in our condition...you who are our judges...please be of counsel to us...direct us where in we may standin need. We are not conscious to ourselves of any guilt in the least degree of that crime whereof we are now accused...nor of any other scandalous evil, or miscarriage inconsistent withChristianity."
