Murderers and witches?

Late night family ancestry research

While I should be sleeping, I've been looking at a side of my tree that I've not looked at it a while.  And discovered something interesting.  My 8th great grandmother was Ann Foster, one of the witches that died in prison after being convicted in the Salem Witch Trials.  She was protecting her daughter and granddaughter; they were spared.  I am related through her daughter, Hannah, who married Hugh Stone.  He may have been the first murderer convicted in a trial in the US.  He appears to have had a drinking problem and killed his wife and unborn child. 

I was also recently contacted about my Moonlight family line and the uncles that may have gone off to New Zealand.  I love that country!  Wouldn't it be cool to find relatives there too?
