Ann Putnam RIP

Here's a picture I took of the Putnam Family Cemetery in September while on a trip to Essex County, MA. I was there for the annual meeting of a genealogical society I belong to. Since I was in the neighborhood I decided to visit some of the haunts and burial places of my long dead relatives. I'll be posting more from this trip as I get them organized but I thought this image was appropriate for Halloween.

Ann Putnam RIP

I couldn't find her grave but Ann Putnam is buried somewhere in there. According to the "relationship calculator" in my genealogical program she is my 2nd cousin eight times removed. As one "afflicted" by witchcraft in 1692 she was the principal accuser of my 8th great grandmother Rebecca Nurse. She stood up in front of her congregation in 1706 and formally apologized.
