  • Notes  Married:
    • "[T]he three surviving daughters, Rebecca Nurse, Mary Esty and Sarah Cloyes, gained a tragic prominence in one of the most unhappy chapters of Salem's history, the witchcraft delusion. The story has been told many times, but always the nobility of character of the three sisters gains our admiration and respect." [1]
