Biography

Phoebe2 Wildes (John1 Wild) was born 1653 in Topsfield, Massachusetts, and died 08 Apr 1723. She married Timothy Day 24 Jul 1679 in GLOUCESTER, MA, son of Anthony Day and Susannah Matchett.

Notes for Phoebe Wildes:

Her husband's receipt for her legacy from her grandfather Gould's estate is as follows:-- "This Massachusetts sartefi to houm it Massachusetts consern that I Timothy Day have reseued the full and iust sum of my wife house name was Phoebe Wylds part of ye wish in riten bond of my unkel John Gould." In 1692 she was accused of witchcraft and was taken to Ipswich gaol where she remained until September 24, of the same year, when she was released on bonds for her reappearance, together with Mary Rowe and Widow Rachel Vinson. These three Gloucester witches were accused of bewitching the sister of Lieut. Stephens, and the story is also related that when the three women were crossing Ipswich bridge on their way to the gaol, an old woman who met them was immediately thrown into convulsions. The fact that she was taken to Ipswich instead of to Salem, where the trials were being held, may have saved her life, for there were so many victims in Salem that all others were forgotten.

She died April 8, 1723, aged seventy.
