Abigail (Dane) Faulkner (October 13, 1652 – February 5, 1730) was an American woman accused of witchcraft during the Salem witch trials in 1692. In the frenzy that followed, Faulkner’s sister Elizabeth Johnson, her sister-in-law Deliverance Dane, two of her daughters, two of her nieces, and a nephew, would all be accused of witchcraft and arrested.[1] Faulkner was convicted and sentenced to death, but her execution was delayed due to pregnancy.[1] Before she gave birth, Faulkner was pardoned by the governor and released from prison.[1]
