Well. I know what you mean but I do not like to be lumped in with ‘witches’ or even use that word. That is a whole different cultural thing and has a very negative history. My family does not have that type of history or culture.
Knowledge of herbs is a world wide, centuries old, scientific understanding of how the usage of plants affect the human body and has nothing to do with religion unless you make it a part of a ceremony. People who call it ‘magic’ or ‘weird’ just lack the education to understand it.
As far as the ‘sight’ goes. I don’t ‘believe’ anything. I just see what I see. Unfortunately, over the centuries, people have put a lot of ‘hoodoo’ on stuff that really should not be there. and… I will stop here. This is diverging from family research.
That is so sad, that they were outright murdered that way because of fear, ignorance and someone who wanted them gone.
It’s really sad that they let that hysteria ruin people’s lives.
And it’s karma that the two lines had to marry to rid the family of that negativity.
