INTRODUCTION. 



With this volume we beg to present the Thirteenth volume of 
the Vital Record of Rhode Island and we believe that this 
will prove as interesting as any one of the previous volumes of the 
series. We have finished the Deaths from the Providence Jour- 
nal and have commenced those from the Providence Gazette. 
These bear date from 1762 to 1830 and will supply a long felt want 
to the genealogical student. The public records have little or 
nothing in the way of deaths, and many burials have no stones 
with the record upon them, especially at the period covered in the 
earlier portion. 

Some of our friendly critics think we have too many notes at- 
tached to our announcement of the death. We are always ready 
to receive advice but we still believe our notes will be received with 
pleasure by most of our readers, and particularly those notes that 
most decidedly place the person named and the locality of the 
death. 

With the respective newspapers we have placed an extended 
note regarding the publication of the same. 

We still have occasion to feel thankful to the General Assem- 
bly that they have in their wisdom been pleased to extend their 
courtesy towards this volume as they have so cheerfully done in the 
case of those volumes before published. We have also occasion to 
thank those officers having in charge the file of newspapers from 
which these notes were taken. Finally we thank our friends, who 
have stood by us in our work, for their kind assistance and en- 
couragement of our labor. 

Please bear in mind in reading our dates that in the original 
published list many have no date of death assigned while many 
others have the date distinctly given. In the former case the word 
Journal or Gazette before the date means that in the paper of 
this date the death was announced, the exact date not being given. 
Again the reader will be much surprised to note how long a time 
elapses in many cases between the date of the death and its an- 
nouncement. The people in those days were not so prompt in 
such matters as they are today. 

We close by trusting that the reader will find a pleasure in the 
perusal of this volume, as well as feel that he has been well com- 
pensated for his time spent in our company.

PROVIDENCE JOURNAL. 



Deaths Published from January 3, 1820, to 
December 31, 1829. 



The present series of newspapers known as the " Providence 
Journal" began with an issue on January 3, 1820, and has been 
pubhshed semi-weekly on Monday and Thursday until the present 
time. On July 21, 1829, the Daily Journal was established. The 
numbers of the Daily Journal from July 21 to December 31 are not 
on file in the Journal office, but the file there commences with Jan- 
uary I, 1830. The file of the semi-weekly, January 3, 1820, to 
December 31, 1S29, in the Journal office is not complete, nor is that 
in the library of the Historical Society. With the aid of the two, 
however, a complete record has been obtained. 

The deaths from A to R were published in our preceding vol- 
ume XII of the Vital Records. The present installment therefore 
commences with the letter S.

The 
Providence Gazette. 



DEATHS. 



THE PROVIDENCE GAZETTE. 



The Providence Gazette was the first newspaper printed in 
Providence. The first number was issued October 20, 1762, the 
last October 8, 1825. 

Its full title when first published was The Providence Ga- 
zette AND Country Journal containing the freshest advices 
both Foreign and Domestic. January 5, 1782, this last caption was 
dropped. January 10, 1795, and Country Journal followed, but 
was restored Jan. 12, 181 1. March i, 18 17, it was dropped again 
and there was substituted ajid Moral, Political and Commercial 
Advertiser. When it became a semi-weekly in January, 1820, it 
was known as The Providence Gazette only until it was merged 
with the American Oct. 11, 1825, and then known as The Rhode 
Island American and Providence Gazette. This paper lasted 
until 1832. 

It was a weekly until 1820, and thereafter until October 8 
1825, a semi-weekly. While a weekly its publication day was Sat- 
urday, except from October 4, 1780, to January 24, 1781, when it 
was Wednesday. From Saturday, May 11, 1765, until August 9, 
1766, its publication was suspended. While a semi-weekly the pub- 
lication days, in -1820, were Monday and Thursday; from 1821 to 
October 8, 1825, Wednesday and Saturday. 

Of these numbers we have been so fortunate as to have seen 
all but Nos. 139, 149, and 502. 

At the October meeting of the Rhode Island Historical Society 
in 1897 Hon. Amos Perry read a paper on this subject, which was 
printed in the Quarterly. 

In this paper he says that the first editor and proprietor was 
William Goddard ; that from August 9, 1766, Sarah Goddard & Co. 
were the publishers; from Sept. 19, 1767, Sarah Goddard and John 
Carter. After November 12, 1768, John Carter was sole proprie- 
tor until November 9, 1797, when William Wilkinson was a partner 

LofC. 



200 VITAL EECORD OF RHODE ISLAND 

with Carter and so continued until May ii, 1799, when Carter was 
again sole proprietor. February 19, 1814, Hugh H. Brown and 
William H. Wilson were proprietors. After June 22, 1816, Brown 
was sole proprietor, until January 3, 1820, when he took Walter R. 
Danforth as a partner. When the paper was merged with the 
American in October, 1825, Brown was again sole proprietor and 
A. G. Greene, editor. 

When Mr. Brown made this change in his business he sold 
only the newspaper portion and still continued in the business as a 
job printer. 

When the paper was first printed it was advertised as "Printed 
opposite the Court House." While it lived it had four different lo- 
cations on the east side but was removed from one of these places 
to another several times in its career. 

In this newspaper is a large amount of rich historical matter. 
It is the only newspaper in the State of whose issues during the 
War of the Revolution we have today a complete file. Its position 
was strongly in favor of the cause of the Colony. The subject mat- 
ter in its columns was well handled and its literary style was of a 
high order. 

Hon. Zachariah Allen had the largest and best collection of the 
files of this paper in the State. He presented this to the Rhode 
Island Historical Society who have added considerable to it. They 
now lack approximately 75 numbers. The Providence Journal has 
the next best collection. The John Carter Brown Library and S. 
S. Rider have collections of the earlier numbers. The American 
Antiquarian Society of Worcester, Mass., have a few only. From 
these latter files we have been able to gain access to all but three 
numbers as above stated. Our thanks are hereby extended to the 
custodians of these files for the favor of perusal. 

In 1892 Mr. Albert Holbrook made a selection from the Deaths 
and Marriages herein recorded of such family names and events as 
he was personally interested in. These he copied into a book which 
is now in the possession of the Rhode Island Historical Society. 

In our collection following we have taken every death and mar- 
riage recorded where the names were given. To do this, it is need- 
less to remark, has cost us a large amount of time and patience.

VITAL RECOKD OF RHODE ISLAND 



ARNOLD Brigadier General Benedict, in Eng- 
land ; an intrepid warrior, who in many 
arduous and bloody conflicts, performed 
such gallant exploits and rendered such im- 
portant services to this his native country 
during her magnanimous struggle for free- 
dom and independence, as would have ren- 
dered his name illustrious in her annals and 
embalmed his memory to all posterity had 
not, alas, his subsequent conduct (produced 
by a rash and unjustifiable spirit for revenge 
for supposed injuries) cast an indelible stain 
on his once celebrated character.and damned 
it to everlasting fame. "The evils that men 
do live after them ; the good is oft interred 
with their bones." Gazette of 

Benedict ; a singular fact that, the very day 
that the news of his death was received at 
Greensburgh or Tarrytown, the large tulip 
tree under which Andre was taken was de- 
stroyed by lightning. The people regret 
the loss, and have carefully preserved pieces 
of the historic tree. Gazette of
