Hello cousin indeed. I have the movie you mention and lived in new England years ago so of course went to the Nurse homestead/farm. My daughter is named Rebecca for Rebecca Nurse and also because she was born in NE. (Weymouth) Time to get out the video and watch it again.
Just this last year, I have had a few Tarbell cousins contacting me, and in fact visiting me. One has the first name of Tarbell.
I do genealogy, and my dad always said there were Dr's. in the family. That proved true, nearly all his grandfathers were Dr's.
Now the strange part. His sister also said there were Nurses in the family. Well, makes sense, and I filed that away, not knowing how it was to fit. Then a cousin told me about Rebecca Nurse. WOW, so that's the nurse!!!
My aunt only heard talk about the NURSE name as a child, and as we all do as children it goes into our brain file, not knowing just where to put it. I am so glad she remembered that bit of information.
Nice meeting you, I believe there is yet another Freeper cousin.
