Frederick and Cora Salmen's 71 Acre Farm Grafton Nebraska , 1915

In 2019 I discovered that my 5th Great-Grandfather on my mother’s side, John B. Boren Sr. (1726-1821) was married to Sarah Vining, the daughter of Anna Nichols-Vining. Anna had three aunts accused in the Salem Witch Trials (1692-1693). One of Anna’s aunts, Sarah Cloyce, was accused, but never indicted. Two of Anna’s other aunts, Rebecca Nurse and Mary Easty, were hung as witches.
