Current Research:

I currently have my application in for the Mayflower Society under Richard Warren.  Current research indicates direct descent from Richard Warren*, Francis Cooke*, John Cooke#, John Howland*, John Tilley*, Joan (Hurst) Tilley, and Elizabeth Tilley#.  (* means signer of the Mayflower Compact and # means a child on the Mayflower).  Interestingly, I'm working on my husband's Mayflower application and it turns out we're cousins...15 times removed!

Associated Daughters of Early American Witches

Ann (Alcock) Foster through her daughter Hannah (Foster) Stone, who was murdered by her husband Hugh Stone in a drunken rage over a property sale disagreement.  Ann was an 72 year old widow when she was accused of making another woman in town, Elizabeth Ballard, ill with fevers the doctors could not break.  Her accusers brought Ann Putnam and Mary Walcott from Salem who "confirmed" that Ann was a witch and causing the affliction.  Despite her age and frailty, Ann resisted the torture while being "put to the question" for many days until her daughter and granddaughter, Mary Lacey and Mary Lacey, Jr, were also accused.  At that point she accepted all blame onto herself and saved her family.  Ann died 21 weeks after being jailed and shortly before the witch trials were discredited.
