I have heard that Richard Coman testified at the Salem Witch Trials against A Ms. Bishop. See http://etext.virginia.edu/salem/witchcraft/texts/BoySal1.htmlhttp://etext.virginia.edu/salem/witchcraft/texts/BoySal1.html But I have also heard that he did not - sort of a controversy. There are a lot of Coman in NE CT - Woodstock area.
My ggrandmother was Ellen Coman. How are you related?
