    Notes 
    • He saved his mother's life because the Puritans dared not kill even a witch's innocent babe. His mother, Abigail DANE Faulkner, was convicted of being a witch in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and sentenced to death. She named him Ammi Ruhamah which means "My people have obtained mercy" or "mercy for my people".
