Abigail Faulkner Lamson
relationship: Her 2nd cousin 9x removed
Like her mother Abigail Dane Faulkner and sister Dorothy Faulkner Nurse, Abigail was accused and arrested for witchcraft during the summer of 1692. She was 9 years old at the time of her arrest on 16 September 1692. She was eventually released and pardoned many years after the fact. She was “persuaded” to testify against her mother.
Dorothy Faulkner was released from prison in October 1692 after relatives Nathaniel Dane and John Osgood posted bail for her and several other child relatives.
