She was seventeen years old in the spring of 1692. Dr. Griggs, the town physician in Salem, Massachusetts, diagnosed Elizabeth and several other girls with the affliction of an “Evil Hand”. In simpler terms, the girls were said to be victims suffering from the powers of the Salem witches, trials lasting February 1692 to May 1693. During this time, twenty people were executed by hanging (except for one), fourteen of which were women. Hubbard was an orphan and lived with her uncle, Dr. William Griggs and his wife. She was known by locals as the servant of the house rather than their adopted daughter.
