Kathy, Sorry to take so long to respond. The parts about our ancestor Captain Samuel Talcott in the book that are factual are as follows: He was Commissioner of Wethersfield and Deputy of the General Court between 1670 and 1684. And was Assistant to Andros, who was mentioned in the book as well.
Rev. Greshom Bulkley mentioned as one of the Judges in the trial, may also be the father of Peter Bulkley who married Samuel's daughter Rachel.
