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..

Just some added info for you:
John's wife was the Widow Everill, having been married previously to Abiel Everill. Her maiden name was Phillips.

This graves and two others were placed in the 19th century upon the outter wall of the Old South Church on the Boylston Street side. This is the resting spot of the gravestone, not the remains of the individuals.

Hi Bill. I am finding records stating that tombs and pews were purchased at Old South. I'm pretty sure there was a cemetery as well. If there is not history of the "move" of the burials, then that is why the burials were not recorded well. Gen John Winslow's family is just plain gone... missing. And there is something about a cemetery in Marshfield... was there re-interments at Old South? Something, I can't get it to my memory well and re-researching makes me crazy... lol
