Is there anyone who comprehends dates writing these things?

I'm trying to track down my 6x great-grandfather's second wife. (A whole blank area in Mom's genealogy just crashed in and there's lots of information. A month ago I couldn't find my 4x great-grandfather).

So, my ancestor, after the death of his first wife, married a young widow named Anne Greenslit or Greensleet. Anne's first husband was one Jacob Pudeater. He died. Anne Greenslit Pudeater was executed in 1692 during the Salem Witch Trials.

She must have been a really good witch, because she married my ancestor in 1710, and was granted administrator of his will in 1724. Pretty good going for someone who'd been dead that long.

Obviously, the woman my ancestor married was some other Anne Greenslit. But when I look at a mess like this, I really shake my head.

and she had several children, too! After being hanged!
