Hello Margarette,

Noticed your posting in May 1999, "Who are Jane Godfrey's Real Parents?" You mention in the publication "Cape May County Magazine of History & Genealogy, June, 1953, pg. 251 appears an article on the Swain family and it mentions John Godfrey of Ipswich who was tried for witchcraft and was exonerated.

I understand that an Isabella possiable surname Craddock or Upham married to William Holdridge was the principal witness in John Godfrey's witchcraft case in 1659.

I am trying to find more documention regarding Isabella and her testifing in this case. I am wondering if the publication you mentioned has more information regarding this particular witch trail.

Any information is most appreciated. Thank You!
Susan Perry
