Witches had the ability to fly, Sometimes on broomsticks. Betty was seen flying over the Ingersoll's barn.
A person was guilty of being a witch if they could quiet a possessed person just by touching them.
"this is all just a big lie"
Witches had the ability to serve as a medium between the living and the dead.
Witch cakes made were made of rye-meal mixed with the urine of a person that has been possessed. The “cake” is fed to a dog (or other animal), the animal will then tell who put the spell on the possessed.
