On this date in our family history . . . the 27th day of October . . . in the year 1710 . . . Mary Osgood nee Clemens dies in Andover, Essex County, Massachusetts . . . Mary was a daughter of Robert Clemens . . . she was married to John Osgood in November of 1653, and it is said that they had a dozen children . . . this Mary is a 9th great-grandma to the Keeper of this family history blog . . . 


In 1692, Mary was accused of witchcraft . . . made a confession . . . but then recanted her confession on the 16th day of October . . . nevertheless, Mary was indicted on charges of witchcraft in January of 1693 . . . and spent about four months in the Salem prison . . . "she, with four others, were then released upon the petition of Mr. Dudley Bradstreet and a number of other Andover people, who had come to a better state of mind." . . . 


P.S. . . . one of Mary's brothers was Robert Clemens . . . who is a 4th great-grandpa to Samuel Langhorne Clemens . . . who is aka Mark Twain . . . who is already my 4th cousin four times removed via one of my Southern lines . . .
