being of 10X decendant of Capt. John Gould b.1635 England, I have found info. concerning the salem trials that directly relate John Gould and inlaws The "Wilds" ( wildes) in a family feud that ended up to making claims of witchcraft.
1) source is " The family of Zaccheus Gould of Topsfield" by Benjamin Gould
2)Salem Witch Trials Notes from the "Topsfield Historical Collection" Topsfield,Ma.
I think this article may be viewed as "Salem witch trials" on Ancestory.com
