About Mary Wolcott (Sibley)

circa 25 February 1692: Prayer services and community fasting conducted by Reverend Samuel Parris in hopes of relieving the evil forces that plague them. Tituba, following the instructions of neighbor Mary Sibley, bakes a "witch cake" and feeds it to a dog. According to an English folk remedy, feeding a dog this kind of cake would counteract witchcraft. The cake is fed to a dog because the dog is believed a "familiar" of the Devil. Pressured to identify the source of their affliction, the girls name three women as witches.
