How many people were executed during the Salem witch trials, and who were they?

I'm doing an extra credit assignment for school, in US History. Since it's around Halloween time anyways, and we're being taught about the early East Coast settlements, I figured I might as well let my imagination run free and do a fun assignment for a change.

I tried searching it up on Google, but the first few links said either 12 or 20 were executed, and I heard from somewhere that 25 were killed, including a baby. Assuming there are many intelligent people on Yahoo Answers, I'd rather ask you guys than go through 50 web pages for an answer.

I know one of them was Bridget Bishop, and a few other names that I can't think of right now, but I don't know what order they're in.

When you answer this question, I'd prefer it if you created a numbered list.

Example:

1. Bob (being the first)

2. Jimmy (being the second)

3. Tim (being the third)

And so on and so forth.
