I am related to 2 people hung on the same day: Rev. George Burroughs and Martha Ingalls (Allen) Carrier - George in my grandfather's line and Martha in my grandfather's line. See www2.iath.virginia.edu/salem/images/people/burroughs2.jpg - Caption: "Witchcraft Victims on the Way to the Gallows" Description: A scene showing a man and a woman on Gallows Hill. The man may be the Rev. George Burroughs, who is shown standing in prayer. The woman may be Martha Carrier, who was executed with him on August 19, 1692. Also executed on that day were George Jacobs, Sr., John Proctor, Sr., and John Willard. The man on horseback may be the Rev. Cotton Mather who attended the executions on this day and encouraged the hanging to go forward, even though George Burroughs recited the Lord's Prayer perfectly and won the crowd's sympathy.
