Witchcraft

Share

In 1863…

The only witchcraft trial in the province of Pennsylvania occurred before the Council, previous to the organization of the Provincial Court, on December 27, 1683. Only one of two old women, both of them Swedes, seems to have been tried. Margaret Mattson lived on her husband’s plantation on the Delaware River, near Crum Creek, in Ridley township.
