Father and son Governors John and Samuel Cranston &
Memorial for John and Samuel Cranston located in the Common
Burial Ground in Newport, RI. Click on the above link to see the actual grave with Governors Plaque located in the "Old Section" then Click on the "Samuel Cranston" link to see the plaque. The original stone sits next to the stone with the lenghty inscription. The "Old Section" is located in the south east corner and is separated from the Common Burial Ground by an iron rail fence and has its own entrance. See the Frances Latham post for directions to the stone. John is an 8th Great Granduncle
by marriage and Samuel is a 1st cousin 9x removed. Like the Clarkes, John and Samuel were also father and son governors.
