(In Oct 1670, Elizabeth Warren...prior to her marriage to Sgt. Knapp/Knopp...was accused of being a witch and is mentioned prominently in Cotton Mather's "Magnali Christi Americana." She was a servant in the home of Rev. Samuel Willard, who provided Cotton Mather with the narrative regarding her "possession" in Salem, MA. Obviously, things turned out well because within four years, she was married.)
