Ohio became a state more than 100 years after all the witchcraft frenzy that made Salem, Mass. famous. And yet superstitions lingered into the 19th century. We recount three witch stories from Ohio: The state's only known witchcraft trial, the tale of a farmer who was convinced he'd killed a witch, and the story of how a brave Quaker stood up to Shawnee Indians intent on killing an alleged witch. www.ohiomysteries.com feedback@ohiomysteries.com www.patreon.com/ohiomysteries www.twitter.com/mysteriesohio www.facebook.com/ohiomysteries Music:Audionautix- The Great Unknown The Great Phospher- Daniel Birch
