Celebrating a 400th Birthday
** :) post a coin with a 20, 21 or 16 or 19 in the date [or any coin you like] B) **

Being of Boston Puritan ancestry, I appreciate what my ancestors endured.

Rebecca Nurse was accused of witchcraft in 1692 and hung at the gallows in Salem.

“She did all the right things. She went to church and followed all the rules, but she was still pointed out and called a witch,” she said. “Going to the gallows in her 70s as the oldest person executed and going willingly and accepting— based on what we know, she is such a strong woman.”

She would have been 400 years old this year.

Rutkowski said no one is completely sure when Nurse was born, but they know she was baptized on Feb. 21, 1621.

“Puritans didn't really celebrate birthdays,” she said, “but baptisms were important, and they were usually the following Sunday after a person was born.”

    Very nice tree @The_Dinosaur_Man :)
    I like it, since she lived {until they killed her} until 1692, [age 71] , she probably had one of those at one time or another

    Sorry, Pilgrim, not Puritan (for those of us that know the difference ;) ).


    Actually, the Puritans get a bad rep in America. The Puritans were WAY ahead of their time in that they believed that all their kids should go to school to learn to read. It was so their children could read the Bible by themselves and create a "purified" variant of the Church of England, specifically a Congregational church under the auspices of the Church of England.
