Biography, from Wikipedia

Putnam Memorial State Park Redding, Connecticut 

Major William Hathorne arrived in the New World in 1630 on the Arbella.

Major William Hawthorne - Our direct ancestor via his daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth married Israel Porter. Their daughter Elizabeth Porter married Capt. Joseph Putnam. Their son was Israel Putnam. This is the Putnam and Porter connection that I figured out by doing my own research. The Putnam and Porter families of Salem were wealthy land owners and they had feuds lasting many years. These are the same families that were involved in the Witch Trials. Also, given that we are descended from William Hawthorne III,  this means we share common ancestors with Nathaniel Hawthorne. It's a small World .

Major William Hathorne (Hawthorne's paternal great-great-great grandfather; c. 1606-1681) 
Major William Hathorne arrived in the New World in 1630 on the Arbella. After living in Dorchester, MA, he moved around 1636 to Salem. He became a deputy to the General Court of Massachusetts and gained the rank of major in campaigns against the Indians. He was, as Hawthorne later characterized him, "a bitter persecutor" of Quakers. In particular, he is remembered for ordering the whipping of Ann Coleman. Both in "Main Street" and in "The Custom House" sketch, Hawthorne refers to this ancestor as a persecutor of Quakers, and he is referred to indirectly in "Young Goodman Brown." 
Justice John Hathorne (son of Major William Hathorne and Hawthorne's paternal great-great-grandfather; 1641-1717) 
John Hathorne was the third son and fifth child born to Major William and Anna Hathorne. He became a prosperous merchant in Salem and a judge on the Superior Court. He was also commander-in-chief against the Indians in 1696. He is best known, however, as the "witch judge" as he was a magistrate of the Court of Oyer and Terminer and the chief interrogator of the accused witches in the Salem witchcraft hysteria of 1692. John Hathorne is enterred at the Charter Street Burying Point in Salem. 
Captain William Hathorne (brother of Justice John Hathorne; 1645-1678/79)
Captain Willliam Hathorne fought in King Philip's War in 1675. 
Joseph Hathorne (son of Justice John Hathorne; 1692-1762)
Joseph Hathorne prospered, first as a ship captain and then as a farmer. He married Sarah Bowditch, daughter of William Bowditch and Mary Gardner, who was the first cousin of Ruth Gardner Hathorne.
