I am still waiting for our family records to ship but yes they had 5 or 6 children mostly boys. They all left the area after she was hung. From all acounts my family ever came up with she was an herbal healer and didnt buy into the superstitions of the time many that the churches put in place for the laws of healing. apparently she had a feew patients die and of course was accused of being a witch but in the early 200's was officially exsaunerated of her crimes. there was a small piece in the newspaper. most records I discovered were distroyed or lost on the witches of salam probally more to due with lack of evidence. but if you are able to some haw find the court transcripts you could learn alot about her charges I have had no luck so far.
