BIOGRAPHY: Alden_Gen, Violet Main Turner and E. Huling Wordworth, (The Alden Kindred of New York City and Vicinity, New York NY, 1935), Page 40 (Reliability: 3)

During the height of the witchcraft delusion, he was one of the accused. He was taken to jail in Salem, and managed to escape just before the execution of 9 of the victims
He was hidden out by relatives in Duxbury until the madness subsided, after which he turned himself in and was bound over to the Superior Court. When no one appeared to prosecute, he, along with some 150 others, was discharged by proclamation, and all judicial proceedings brought to a close..
