Alice Parker (Salem witch trials) Wikipedia
Alice Parker, a resident of Salem Town, Massachusetts, was executed on September 22, 1692 during the Salem Witch Trials. Martha Corey, Mary Eastey, Ann Pudeator, and Dorcas Hoar were convicted and sentenced to death by hanging at the same time, but Hoar was given a reprieve after falsely confessing. Also hanged on that day were Mary (née Ayer) Parker and Samuel Wardwell. The Rev. Nicholas Noyes officiated. Mary Bradbury was sentenced, but escaped. The charges against Alice included the murder of Mary Warren's mother.
Some sources note that Alice was the wife of John Parker. There were several Parker families in the area which has resulted in some confusion.
