The time and place written is Salem and Concord, Massachusetts, most probably the late 1840s. Let me know if you have other questions.

sorry but it wasnt in the 1800s , think of it, surveyor Pue died in 1760 and heard of hester's story in his youth time from old men of that time who also described her as a very old woman in their childhood times.mathematically it was around 1640s
