Sarah Good was one of the first women to be tried in the Salem Witch trials. The little girls in her village identified her as a witch. Good protested her innocence, but Puritan officials did not believe her. The officials questioned her frightened young daughter. The girl gave timid and unsure answers, which to the Puritans was proof of her guilt and sentenced her to be hanged. Good was pregnant at the time of her sentencing, so they waited until after she gave birth to hang her. The infant died in prison. In July 1692, Sarah Good was hanged.
Dorothy "Dorcas" Good
Dorothy "Dorcas" Good was Sarah Good's child. At the age of 4 she was questioned by Puritans about her mother being a witch. After her mother was hanged, Dorcas was imprisoned for 9 months and then released on 50 pounds bail. Dorcas went insane while she was imprisoned, but later recovered.
Bridget Bishop was accused of bewitching five young girls in April of 1692. These girls were Abigail Williams, Ann Putnam, Mercy Lewis, Mary Walcott, and Elizabeth Hubbard. There were also allegations that Bishop's spirit was haunting the men of the town and attacking them in their sleep.
