  1. Bill Elliott says:

    Could it not be argued that the Daniel Elliot mentioned in the 1848 (feel Bill means 1648) article as being killed by the Indians was in fact the father of the 1665 Daniel? Perhaps this Daniel lived outside of the Danvers area and therefore his name would not have been listed in Mr. Parris’s records.

  2. Linda Elliott says:

    I agree with Bill. He is listed in the Danver’s Records but was not a member of Mr. Parris’s church so there is no mention of him there. Also, young Daniel was behind in his tax payment to Mr. Parris so there were problems. I am surprised that Hannah (Anna) was not accused as being a witch.
