Salem Witch Trials...Nurse Rebecca

Rebecca Towne Nurse (or Nourse) (February 21, 1621 – July 19, 1692) was executed for witchcraft by the government of the Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England in 1692, during the infamous Salem witch trials. She was the wife of Francis Nurse, a mother of several children and grandchildren, and a well respected member of the community. Although there was no credible evidence against her, this 71-year-old, frail grandmother was tragically hung to death as a witch on July 19, 1692. This occurred during a time when the Massachusetts colony was seized with hysteria over witchcraft and the supposed presence of Satan within the colony
