Sorry about the hijack. I agree Maine is great. I'd like to spend more time there now that I've retired. I like Vermont but Main is wonderful also.

I sure got off track Rick...sorry. Dean living in Andover sparked me to go way off. I tend to jump to the next shiney object sometimes. I hope in all this your question got answered.

Default Ralph Farnum and the Andover trials

Hi Tom Falnigan, With regard to post #16. Is it possible to see the Farnum letters regarding the Andover trials? Ralph Farnum is my husband's 8th Great-grandfather. Your post is all new information we did not have and would love to add to our files. Denise

I don't have the originals, just excerpts from them. I have a ton of information on the Farnums with the complete lineage going back to when the family came over on the brig James in 1635 after a harrowing journey from England. The direct lineage is complete right up to my grandfather who gave me my first Parkers and taught me to hunt grouse.

Ralph Farnum II was a grand journeyman at the beginning of the trials but died before giving service. His sons testified first against Martha Carrier. The story behind why they thought Martha Carrier was a witch is fascinating. They truly believed she was a witch but did not want to testify against her although they also testified against the wife of Hopestill Tyler later. Martha Carrier was hung and Hopestill Tyler's wife was aquitted.

I'll send all the information to you private email.

Sorry, can't do that Scott. I don't want them in my coverts and fields. Yankee that I am, I hunt in the West also, but its north of the border in Saskatchewan, a truly enchanted land for ducks, huns and sharptails. I'll make sure to stay out of Arizona to please you though.
