PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

Here's an edu site that includes original source material. It lists 19 people executed, one of whom was Giles Cory who was crushed to death.

In addition, it lists 5 having died in jail, 1 an infant girl.

This site has a lot of interesting source material

I few other details I remember from when I studied this in school:

It actually took place in Salem Village which is now called Danvers.

There was a great deal of tension between Salem Village and Salem Town and if you look at the location of the accusers and accused you see that one set came primarily from the town or had links to the town and the others came from the village (I'm not 100% sure but I think accusers were villagers trying to keep their way of life and accused were town trying to be more progressive).

A few decades later, a group of youngsters exhibited very similar symptoms but the mood of the country had changed and it was interpreted as being touched by god not the devil.

eta: OOPS. According to the memorial site, there are 20 memorials so it does seem to be 19 hanged and 1 pressed.

Also, here is a site with a lot of non-tourist links for further research.
