I'm not sure I can provide you with "reliable" information. I can only tell you what my Grandmother told me. i.e. We are decendants of Mary Barnes who was hung as a witch in Connecticut. She and her husband, Thomas, owned a farm. Upon that property the Hartford Train Station was eventually built. It was a very valuable piece of land. Shortly after Mary was hung, Thomas married the judge's daughter. Mary and Thomas had several children. My family decends from the eldest, a daughter, who, if I remember correctly was namerd Elizabeth. This is the family tale that has come down to me.
