“[Author Edward Eggleston] errs in saying that with Salem, witchcraft trials ended in America. Virginia held one in 1706, North Carolina in 1712 and doubtless others were held elsewhere.”
– From “Everyday Life in Early America” by David Freeman Hawke (1989)
I’m not seeing supporting evidence in either Hawke’s bibliography or Tom Peete Cross’s “Witchcraft in North Carolina” (1919). Does a Miscellany reader have the rest of the story?
