After learning about this story and the websites from Bonnie, I decided to do some checking
to see what I could find out about it. I wanted documented facts only. Below is what I found.
Thanks Bonnie for telling me about this...

The Truth
Mary Evelyn Ford's Death Certificate shows that she was not burned as a witch but died from peritonitis ( inflamation of the stomach lining) and rec(t)al impaction.
Also her mother Mary Rebecca (Davis) Ford was still living in the 1920 Crittenden Co., Ky. census
h/h 64/64 Ford's Ferry Dist., four years after the death of Mary Evelyn.
Neither was burned for being a witch.
Shame on the one that started this story about a "Little Witch Girl"
