    Owned by Rev. Samuel Parris of Salem, Massachusetts
    One of the first three people accused of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials (1692)
    First of the accused to confess
    Little is known of her background, including whether she was African or a Caribbean Indian.
    She allegedly taught Parris' daughter Elizabeth and her friends how to tell fortunes by dropping an egg white into a glass of water.
    After Elizabeth began acting strangely, she baked a 'witch cake' with rye and Elizabeth's urine, which was then fed to a dog that would then reveal the identity of Elizabeth's tormentor.
    Some historians think that without her confession, the witch hunt would have fizzled out.
    Instead, she fueled a hysteria in which nineteen people were executed.
    Rev. Parris may have beaten the confession out of her.
    She recanted her confession while in prison.
    Rev. Parris then refused to pay the jailer's fee to get her out of prison.
    As a result, she spent thirteen months in jail until someone else paid seven pounds for her release and bought her from Parris.
