From: Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines. vol 1 & 2.. p. 583:

"During the years of widowhood of Mary (Baker) Sumner some family trouble came to pass for in October, 1718, her son George "had his sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Sumner (who seemingly must have been the wife of Benjamin with whom the widow lived in the old home) brought before their minister, the Rev. Peter Thacher, "for scandalizing his own mother, and represented her as a witch." The minister called in the deacons, witnesses, etc. and found the accused party guilty of a breach of the fifth, sixth, and ninth commandments: and she confessed her fault and craved forgiveness of God and of all whome she had offended" and then George "and ye rest reued satsifaction and so foraue her, and I (the pastor) was to signify to ye Chh that satisfaction was giuen and taken. So the slandered name of widow Mary was clared...."
