Mary Bliss Parsons
Birth: 1628, England
Death: Jan. 11, 1712
Hampden County
Massachusetts, USA

She was repeatedly tried as a witch and forced to suffer many indignities by her jealous neighbors (specifically the Bridgemans). In 1674, the suit was brought by James Bridgman and his son-in-law Samuel Bartlett, in connection with the "untimely death from unnatural causes" of Mary (Bridgman) Bartlett. She was sent to Boston for trial and was acquitted.

Mary was the daughter of Thomas Bliss Jr and Margaret (Hulins) Bliss of Hartford,CT.

She married Joseph Parsons on Nov 26,1646 at Hartford,CT.

Children: Joseph Parsons Jr, Benjamin Parsons, John Parsons, Samuel Parsons, Ebenezer Parsons, Jonathan Parsons, David Parsons, Mary (Parsons) Ashley Williston, Hannah (Parsons) Glover, Abigail (Parsons) Colton, and Esther (Parsons) Smith.
