Wilmot Redd lived in Marblehead, Maine. She was illiterate, moody, poor, hungry and independent. She used torn strips of dirty cloth wrapped around her feet for shoes. Her natural response to offensive remarks from people was profanity. Basically, she was a cranky old lady who didn't want to be bothered.
Unfortunately, Wimot lived in the 1600s when people were accused of being witches and were hung if found guilty. Wimot was hung on September 22, 1692.
