About Sarah Cole (Aslett)

Sarah Aslett Cole (1662-1741) - Sarah Aslett was born on 17 August 1662 in Andover, Massachusetts and grew up to marry John Cole in 1686 in Lynn.

Sarah was accused of witchcraft by Mary Browne of Reading in a complaint filed on 1 October 1692. A warrant for her arrest was issued two days later and she was examined.
