For more on the witchcraft inquiry pertaining to this family, see my article in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 155, July 2001 "More on the Identity of Abigail (Graves) Dibble, and Her tragic Death and Suspicions of Witchcraft", by Norbert Bankert.

áááááThe Dibble family's propensity for moving to different areas makes it a difficult family to follow and Samuel Dibble shows some of these same characteristics. Although his birth, death, and the births of his children are found in Windsor, records show that he also spent time in other areas. Samuel married his first wife, Abigail Graves, probably about 1665 and possibly in Stamford. Their daughter by this marriage, Abigail, who would marry George Hayes, was born in Stamford in 1666/7. VanBuren Lamb, Jr. states that Samuel was called "of Long Island" before 1683.7 Samuel's father-in-law by his first marriage, William Graves, resided and died in Newtown, Long Island in 1679 and Samuel had nieces and nephews, through his brother Israel, who resided in East Hampton, Long Island. His daughter, Mindwell, married William Barnes of East Hampton and Samuel's son, Samuel, also resided in East Hampton at one time.
áááááIt has also been stated that Samuel received land from his father-in-law, William Graves, in Northfield (Mass.?). He reportedly gave this land to Zachariah Dibble. Zachariah Dibble was the stepson of Samuel's father-in-law, William Graves, the son of John Dibble, of Springfield, and his wife, Sarah (_____). After the death of John Dibble, his widow, Sarah, married William Graves in Stamford in 1647.
áááááSamuel's first wife, Abigail Graves, died in Stamford shortly after the birth of their daughter Abigail. Her suffering was great, and testimony was taken regarding suspicions of witchcraft. The accused appears to be Abigail's father, William, and suggest that the complaint was brought by Samuel Dibble.

Following quotes from the Wyllys Papers.8
In his deposition taken on the 4th of February, Samuel states:
"In ye somer time my wife being afrayde she would have me yeald my selfe to her father In anything it would be the beter for us: I tould her I feard noe man: she sayd maye be so but you doe not knoe what they can doe to us: about a fortnight before my wifs Labor father graves came to my house: and sudently began to Counsail his daughter sayeing Abigall fitt they selfe to meet the Lord: for if thou dost not fall In Labour properly: she would dye and soe went away."

áááááAbigail delivered her child on Saturday morning, the 19th of January, with Mary Homes acting as midwife assisted by Mary Scolefield. The testimony of Mary Homes and Mary Scolefeeld [sic], as found in the Wyllys Papers, speaks of the difficulties of her labor as she approached the birth:
"And then imeiedetly as to Give the Cry: one part of her mouth was drawed up and the other doune: with her Lipes turneing Blake: and her Eyes stareing out In a gastly manner and Likewise her tongue hangeing out, and A dombe voice: and upon this the childe was drawen awaye up into her Bodye in Liekenes to the belly of A wheale, and this Continueing for the spase of halfe An hower only the childe Laye quivering within Her Body, And about An houer after as she apprehended with the pangs of Death and not by the former course of Labour as other woemen have: the childe Came trembling Into ye worlde and Before we coulde gitt her Into Bede she flunge her selfe upon the feet of ye bed, and sayd she was well Enough: and as soone as she was In the bead she had a very strange fitt as formerly shee had."

Testimony of Thomas Steadwell 4 February 1666/7, being at the home of Samuel Dibble Saturday after the delivery:
"one saterdaye In the forenoone presently after the delivry of his wife: continueing there while Sabeth Daye In ye morning helpeing to houlde her his sayd wife In her Raggeing fitts and presently falling of them fitts Into Soundeing fitts, with her tongue fleareing out of her mouth neere a handful Longe: and about as thick as his Wrist and as Black as possible might be: and her Eyes out of her head in a gastly manner and when those fitts went of, her tongue went In againe, But there was Such a smeall with her Breath that none In the Roome were abell to Abide the Steame thereof: the Gastly sight and hidiousnes thereof he Is not Abell to Express, never knowing or Seeing Any In Such fitts and with Such noisome Smeall in his Life."

áááááWhile these accounts show the sad and horrible suffering which Abigail endured in childbirth, her death is never implicitly stated. However, we can be sure that Abigail died on or after the 20th of January, when her husband is comforting her in her suffering, and before the 30th when depositions commenced. Given the vivid description of her sufferings, her death most likely occurred within a day or two of giving birth.

áááááThe outcome of these depositions is also not stated in the available documents, however, it is likely that there was no action taken against William Graves as a result of this inquiry. If there were any consequences they certainly were not severe as William lived another thirteen years and died in Newtown, Long Island, a town founded and inhabited by former residents of Stamford. (For more on these depositions see the article I authored in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, July, 2001, on Abigail (Graves) Dibble).
