Gee,Bob, three presidents and three Salem Witch Trials jurors in one family. Who else will we find in our ancestral attics? If you are unfamiliar with the role of Thomas, Thomas and William Fisk in the trials, see: Prof. Douglas Linder, Univ. Missouri, who has done a really good summary of the Salem Trials, with links to the actual trial transcripts. www.law.umkc..edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/salem/SAL_ACCT/HTM

I also saw the recent PBS documentary on the witch trials "Secrets of the Dead - Witches Curse" which casts a whole new light on what caused the hysteria. www.pbs.org/wnet/secrets2/case1.html
The more I study this area, the more fascinating it gets.

Thanks for sharing the president info with us.
