While perusing for information on a branch of my family I only recently gained information about, I found this intriguing snippet of information, and was wondering if anyone out there might know more about it...

Eng. 1630, after Father's death accused of witchcraft by John Gibson, warrant for arrest, suspicious actions recounted, public
2. [SALEM-WITCH-L] Caporael on ergotism in Salem [1]
Hello all! What with PBS doing their thing with fanning the flames about the ergot theory of Salem, I thought it might be a good idea to post exactly what Caporael wrote in 1976 to kick off this whole theory, and then my next posting will be the Spanos & Gottlieb article which refuted it. Unfortunately, the book where I found both articles reprinted from Science magazine, where they originally appeared, does not include the footnotes... I think I have caught all the errors that my OCR program may

Does anyone know of a resource for any or all of the cemeteries in Salem, or anyone who may have done a book on those buried in Salem? Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

8. [SALEM-WITCH-L] Elizabeth Jackson [1]
I'm sure Cynthia will appreciate the book I read at the Ipswich Public Library: Loevinger, Ruth Howe. 1994. Elizabeth Jackson How, Tragic Victim of Salem Witchcraft Lunacy. Chevy Chase MD 20815. I have not checked its availability elsewhere. I liked the author's discussion of power plays, such as the pressure tactic of attacking vulnerable relatives rather than directly charging an adversary. She also referred to a court case in the 1680s when John Howe (brother-in-law of Elizabeth) testified aga

11. [SALEM-WITCH-L] Samuel Wardwell [1]
Anyone on the list a desc. of Samuel Wardwell? His granddaughter, Hannah Wardwell, married William Buxton. Hannah and William Buxton are my 5th great-grandparents. Samuel is my 7th great-grandfather. I'm looking for the names of Hannah's siblings and any connection to the Buxton family as I also don't know my William's birthday or his parents' names. Hannah was born in 1721 in Andover, Esssex. They were married in 1743. Grace Elizabeth Bliss Smith North American Hon. Secretary, Bliss Family Hist

13. [SALEM-WITCH-L] Article in Modesto Bee [1]
There appeared an article in the May 29, 2001 issue of, "The Modesto Bee" which is published in Modesto, CA, titled, "Legacy of witch trials haunting Salem". This concerns the exoneration for those who died 1692. I tried to find a link to this particular page but couldn't find one. The page was sent as an attachment from my brother. The article is by Steve LeBlanc of the Associated Press. Maybe one of you can have better luck in finding the story. It was on, "The Back Page", page A-14. Website addres

Tonight, on most PBS stations as first of a new series, Secrets of the Dead, a one-hour program, using the old and disputed theory of ergot poisoning as possible cause of the Salem Witchcraft trials will be shown. Have your pens and pencils ready to note any historical errors that will appear and hands poised on keyboards to flood PBS with same. I did a quick look on the website and noted two errors already: Sarah Good, described as "old" on the time-line and area physicians(actually only William Griggs i

18. RE: [SALEM-WITCH-L] Elizabeth Jackson [1]
I am very interested in the story of John Gould's conviction and execution for treason as I am a desendant of another branch of the Gould family. I believe John's father was Zaccheus Gould and I am a descendant of his brother, John (an uncle of the John who was accused of treason). In the Sarah Wildes biography on the Notable Women Ancestors website there is a reference to the case as John Wildes apparently accused his brother in law, John Gould (jr), of treason. I hope I've got this right--I'm working from

I missed seeing the AP story about the Salem trials by reporter Steve LeBlanc. Does anyone know how I might find it either in a back issue of a Boston, Massachussetts area newspaper or on line?

23. [SALEM-WITCH-L] Re: PBS Secrets of the Dead re-run [1]
I went to and under Search Listings by Keywords I typed in Secrets of the Dead. Poof it popped up a little gray screen with all the times and dates and Channels (in my area they switch between the two PBS stations). The Witches Curse isn't re-running here until the 8th of July and it's on the other PBS station. So if anyone missed the orig. show like I did you can perhaps see it again too. Hope this helps. _________________________________________________
24. [SALEM-WITCH-L] Salem cemetary book [1]
Melissa - One recent printed resource on Salem cemetaries -or at least the older historical burying grounds- was locally published by its author, Betty Bouchard, and sold in Salem shops (including the Trolly Depot where she works). I thought it was very nicely done and I believe an enlarged edition has recently been issued. (I just can't put my hand on my copy to tell you the exact title.) The shop's web site should reveal more. I hope this helps. Marilynne Roach ______________________

Well, first of all, if you go back far enough (not so far for some, further for others) you are bound to find "pagans" somewhere in your ancestry. As far as finding one of the "Salem Witches" well, not too many people today believe that they were witches, and them that do know
