Rebecca Nurse Family Cemetery and House, 1678, Danvers, Mass.

On March 23, 1692, Edward and Jonathan Putnam went to officials to swear out a complaint against Rebecca Nurse. A warrant for her arrest was issued immediately, and next day her examination was held in the Salem Village meeting house. When asked by John Hathorne for her response to the charges against her, Rebecca said, " I can say before my Eternal father I am innocent, & God will clear my innocency."
