Thank you so mu Betsy.  I will check it out.  I am trying to find out just how Thomas Hardy is.  He was accused in the Martin case but never charged.  Thomas Hardy sr. daughter however married a Currier and there are other links to family members of people accused in the witch craft trials.

Hi Betsy   I hope you are still around I noticed your note on the witche's trials was from 2011. Oh well I was just in Laconia, NH.  Spent every summer on the Lake since I was a child. I am now 62 tomorrow.  Anyways I found the Maine geneaology site and actually found a person I was looking for from a lady named Susan Foss from Machias, ME. My relavtive Orlando  Bagley was the constable at the first Salem trial.  A man named Junior Libby posted a bunch of photos of my family. He has not reponded to my friend request yet. Lets be friends and see if we can help each other. My brother lives on the lake just before the Weirs.   Jeanne
