Two months ago, I found out some of my ancestors were hung for witchcraft.

This would be my 9th great grandparents. Some of my relatives was hung as witches in 1651: 41 years before the Salem Witch hunt began. Now here's what's interesting. One was John Carrington: one of only 2 men ever hung in the US as a witch. That was a punishment used for women.

The name John was continued till my cousin named his son Richard.

Thats pretty cool at the same time sad. Im sorry for the loss and the way they went. Do you think your family thought that the name John was cursed and thats why they ended it with the naming of your cousin Richard?

I think he just got tired of the name.

He didn't know the history at that time.
