Seeking information about Widow Ann Foster, accused of witchcraft, who died in prison. Who was Ann Foster's husband? Was he Abraham Foster [Abt. 1622-Abt 1711], son of Reginald Foster [1636-1707]?

Savage’s “Genealogical Dictionary of New England” identifies the widow of Abraham Foster, son of Reginald Foster, as the woman who was “…sentenc. to d. for witchcraft, but d. in prison." Another source, however, gives a different name for Abraham's wife -Lydia Burbank. Was Ann his second wife??? Are these two entirely different Foster families?

Many thanks if you can help me untangle this information-

Jean
