Re: William and Dorcas (Galley) Hoar
I just did some research in William Hoar and his wife Dorcas (Galley) Hoar.

She was quite a character. A true "Blacksheep" of the family.
In the 1670s she was accused of running a burglary ring in Beverly Mass.
In 1692 she was accused of being a witch in Salem.
Many of the court transcript are available online. Regarding the witchcraft charges/indictments/testimony... many of the original handwritten documents are available online.
Annis, aka Annice, aka Nancy is mentioned during both of the cases I listed above.
I wrote about Dorcas Hoar on my blog.
I even posted a photo of the original Arrest Warrant charging her with Witchcraft. I will hang it on my wall around Halloween!
