    Notes 
    • ”Rebecca Andrews was born on 18 April 1646 at Watertown, Middlesex, MA, USA. She married George Jacobs, son of George Jacobs, on 9 February 1673/74 at Salem, MA, USA. Rebecca Andrews died after 1717.
           Rebecca Andrews Rebecca was arrested for witchcraft on May 14, 1692. 'The officer perswaded her out of the House, telling her she should speedily return, the children ran a great way after her crying.' She was to remain in prison for ten months, her four young children (daughter Margaret was already in prision) were taken in by neighbors. Her mother, in a petition to the court, calls her '-- - a Woman craz'd, distracted, and broken in her mind, and that she has been so theses twelelve years and upward.' Rebecca apparently blamed herself for the death of a child, possibly her little daughter Mary. Daughter Margaret writes of her in a letter to her father '- - My poor mother, poor woman, is very crazy and remembers her kinnd love to you and to uncle - -' Rebecca was eventually released and was living when her husband, George died in early 1717-18. George was also accused of witchcraft, but fled before he could be arrested. He and his brother-in-law, Daniel Andrews stayed away until the hysteria was over. Where they were has not been established, but the later connection with Wells, Me is suggestive. Her married name was Jacobs. “«s26» [1]
