Executions in Salem Village, 1692

 

This page is to honor the memory of those executed in Salem Village, 1692, including Samuel Wardwell, my 7th great-grandfather and Susannah North Martin, my 8th-great-aunt. Mary Bliss Parsons, my 8th great-grandmother,  was twice tried for witchcraft and acquitted both times. Hopefully,  lessons of tolerance and understanding have been learned so that history will not repeat itself in another place and another time.
