Margaret Jones also puts in an account in Reverend John Hale's 1697 account A Modest Enquiry into the Nature of Witchcraft, published in Boston in 1702.

He mistakenly cites Jones as the first person executed for witchcraft in New England; there is evidence that one Alice /young was executed in Windsor, Connecticut, in 1647, though very little record of her survives.

  4. Scary stuff being judged and accused, then put to death. Cover art goes well with the Halloween theme, for sure. So sorry to hear of the terrorist attack in Canada, Freda. Thanks for hosting.
