  • Notes 
    • Mercy - bur. Sep. 30, 1654, Springfield, Hampden Co., MA. Her given name appears in her death record according to the research of Douglas RICHARDSON (The American Genealogist, Vol. 67, No. 1, pp. 11-15). In 1649, as the 'widow Marshfield,' she resided at Springfield, MA, being previously from Windsor, CT, and having three children - including one married daughter. She was accused of being a witch, and brought court action against Mary PARSONS for making a false accusation. Mary was sentenced to be whipped, and to pay 3 to Goody MARSHFIELD "for and towards the reparation of her good name."
