Indeed! I've long known of my namesake executed for witchcraft at Salem. Which would be way cool if I were actually related. Unfortunately, that Carrier is a New England Carrier hailing from Britain. My family's namesake is French-Canadian and hails from the South (Cajun). I doubt there is any connection. And if there is, our families probably split centuries before Salem. Sadly.
