"I am no more a witch than you are a wizard,
and if you take away my life
God will give you blood to drink."
[to Reverand Nicholas Noyes]

Good was a homeless woman who would go from house to house begging for scraps. And when people did not give her anything, she used to mumble underneath her breath. People came to believe that her mumblings were curses. At her hanging, her words to the Reverand Nicholas Noyes [above] proved to be eerily true as Noyes died choking on his blood 25 years later from a hemorrhage. Good's daughter Dorcas, just 4 years old, was the youngest of the accused.
