INTRODUCTION. 



Herewith we present the fourteenth volume of the Vital 
Rfxord of Rhode Island, believing it will prove as interesting 
as any one of the previous issues of the series. In this volume we 
finished the Deaths from the Providence Gazette and have inserted 
the Marriages under the letters A, B, C. These bear the date 
1762 to 1825. As we remarked in the previous volume, "This will 
supply a long felt want to the genealogical student. The public 
records have little or nothing in the way of deaths and many bur- 
ials have no stones erected with the record upon them, especially at 
the period covered by this volume." 

We are very happy in announcing that our plan of givmg ex- 
tended notes with the death as it has become better known is very 
highly appreciated and many compliments have been given us for 
the information thus conveyed. The intelligent scholar has come 
to our conclusion that it is the life of the work. 

We shall follow this plan in the future, at the same time try- 
ing our utmost to make every word count. 

The General Assembly have again in their wisdom extended 
to us in this volume their usual courtesy. The officers in charge 
of the newspapers have been as usual very obliging and have given 
us all the aid in their power for our compilation. Our thanks are 
given these officers for the favors named. We do not forget our 
friends for their words of cheer, kind assistance and encouragement 
of our labor. 

Please bear in mind in reading these dates that in every case 
where the word Gazette of precedes the date it means that the 
Death or Marriage was published in that issue, and where the 
the word Gazette does not precede the date given it is the date 
of the said Death or Marriage. 

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

DEATHS 

(CONTINUED) 



THE PROVIDENCE GAZETTE. 



The Providence Gazette was the Hrst newspaper printed in 
Providence. The first number was issued October 20, 1762, the 
last October 8, 1S25. 

Its full title when first published was The Providence Ga- 
zette AND Country Journal containing the freshest advices, 
both Foreign and Domestic. January 5, 17X2, this last caption was 
dropped. January 10, 1795, and Country Journal followed, but 
was restored Jan. 12, 181 1. March i, i<Si7, it \i'as dropped again 
and there was substituted and 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 1S32. 

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. F"rom Saturday, Ma)' 11, 1765, until August 9, 
1766, its publication was suspended. While a semi-weekly the pub- 
lication days, in 1S20, were Monday and Thursday; from 1S21 to 
October 8, 1S25, 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 m the Quarterly. 

In this paper he says that the first editor and proprietor was 
William Goddard; that from August 9, 1766, Sarah (joddard it Co. 
were the publishers; from Sept. 19, 1767, Sarah Goddard and John 
Carter. After November 12, 1768, Jnhn Carter was sole proprie- 
tor until November 9, 1797, when William Wilkinson was a partner 
with Carter and so continued until May 1 1, 1799, when Carter was 



•_)() vri'AL i;i;i OKI) ok kuodk lshA^■l) 

again sdlo |in)prietor. I'"ebruary 19, 1814, Hugh H. Riown and 
William 1 1. Wilson were proprietors. After June 22, 1S16, Hrown 
was sole proprietor, until January 3. 1S20, when he took Walter ]\. 
Danl'orth as a partner. When the paper was merged with the 
American in ( )ctolier, 1S25, Hrown was again sole ])roprietor and 
A. Ci. ( ireeiie, editor. 

When Mr. ]5rown made this change in his business he sold 
only the newspaper poition rmd still continued in the business as a 
job printer. 

When the |)aper was first [^rintetl it was ad\'ertised 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 newspai)er is a large amount ot rich historical matter. 
It is the only newspaper in tiie State of whose issues iluring the 
War of the Revolution we have tod.iy a com])lete file. Its position 
was strongly in fa\or ot ihe cause of the Colony. The subject mat- 
ter in its columns was well handled and its liteiaiv style was of a 
high ordei'. 

Hon. Zachariah Allen had the largest and best collection of the 
files of this |)a])er in the .Slate. lie presented this to the Rhmle 
Island Historical Societ)' who ha\e added considerable to it. They 
now lack appro.ximatelv 75 numbers. The Pro\-i(lence Journal has 
the ne.\t best collection. The John Carter ilrown I.ibiar\- and S. 
S. kider have collections of the earlier numbers. The American 
Antiquarian Society of Woicester, Mass., lune .1 tew onh'. From 
these latter liles we ha\e been able to gain .iccess to all but three 
numbers ;is .ibove stated. 1 )iu' thanks are heieln' extended to the 
custodians ot these files for the lavoi' of perusal. 

In 1892 Mr, .\ll)cit llolbi'ook made a selection troin the Deaths 
and Mairiages herein lecmdcd o| such famil)' names and e\'ents as 
he was peisonalh' interested in. Ihese he copied into a book which 
is now in the possession ot the Rhode Ishinil Historic d Society. 

In our collection tollowing we have taken every death and mat- 
riage recorded uhere the n.uiies were given, id ilo thi-^, it is need- 
less to remark, has cost us a laige amount of time and patience. 

The deaths from A to J were published in our preceding 
volume XIH of the X'ital Records. 

The piesent installment therelore commence^ with the letter
