I don't know if the descendants of accused witch, Rebecca Towne Nurse, chose to alter their surname or whether the surname was originally spelled NOURSE but I think thse folks buried at Pan Burying Ground are descendants from this family. These gravestones are linked backwards in time at Find-A-Grave to her.
There is a blog for The Rebecca NURSE Homestead which is located in present day, Danvers, MA.
Deacon Jonathan NOURSE's gravestone is large and has a great weeping willow motif. If it wasn't for the lichen, this would be a spectacular gravestone. The flag and holder indicates that he served in the Revolutionary War.
Pause a moment this week to mourn for the awful events of accusing persons of witchcraft.
