Air Conditioner Inventer decendent of witches!
Willis Carrier invented the air conditioner-His great-great grandfather was a political REFUGEE and his Great-Great Grandmother was hung in Salem, MA as a WITCH………The first Carrier in the United States was Thomas, who arrived in Massachusetts around 1663. There is historical evidence that Thomas was born in Wales in 1622 and that he was a political refugee who assumed the name “Carrier” upon coming to America. Thomas married Martha Allen, daughter of Andrew Allen, a first settler of Andover, MA. After standing up against the Andover town fathers in a boundary dispute, she was accused of being a witch. Two of her sons, aged 13 and 10, were hung by their heels until they, too, testified against her. Cotton Mather denounced her as a “rampant hag” whom the Devil had promised “should be the queen of Hell.” She was arrested, convicted and, on August 19, 1692, hanged on Salem’s Gallows Hill. Later it was recorded that of all the New Englanders charged with witchcraft, “Martha Carrier was the only one, male or female, who did not at some time or other make an admission or confession.”
