Abigail Williams

At age 11 or 12, in 1962, Abigail and her cousin became ill. Her uncle called a reverend to observe them. The reverend reported that they had bite and pinch marks. Apparently, the devil had contorted them so they couldn't move. Local ministers began to pray and fast for their health. Dr. Griggs said they were under an “Evil Hand” The village blamed Tibuta, the uncle’s Indian slave, Sarah Osborne, and Sarah Good for being this "Evil Hand."Abigail testified against Sarah Osborne and Sarah Good and said she saw the “apparition” of Sarah Good pinch the girls and send them into fits.
