Susanna was accused of witchcraft on 21 May 1691 along with Sarah Procter and Sarah Bassett:
Note: We do not know Susannah's maiden name, but she is known as one of the unfortu- nate women to be accused of witchcraft. The only charge against her was that when she was living in the home of Andrew Elliott that she was heard to rise in the night and talk in the room below, also "flying in ye chamer over said roome as if there were 5 or 6 persons with her." She was tried and sent to jail in Boston with other prisoners, Monday the 23rd of May 1692, where she was put in irons . There is no record of her appearance before the Court of Oyer and Terminer, which had jurisdiction in cases of Witchcraft. She was probably dis- charged because of insufficient evidence.....Ref: "Root Genealogical Records 1600 to 1870." p 52
