Many thanks to all of you who responded to my firend's query on the Burned
Over District. I've forwarded all the responses and we're both grateful.

Here's another query in which someone out there might be of help:

" your 27 Feb 1658 states Goody Davis's infant died.....goodman vaile and
his  wife refute this, claim Davis gave her child to an Indian woman to
nurse and it  died of starvation......this statement differs from Orion and
King's Transcript  of Lecture, and Gerorge DeWan of Newsday.com Long Island
Our Story......my  question to you is: what is the real story about My
ancestrial grand mother, Mrs  Davis?..someone should look at the orignal
document for us who are not from New  York.........thanks Gerald Dee Salyer"

My own source would have been the Long Island Our Story site.

Thanks again and in advance,
