Pawtuxet Cove circa 1870
Pawtuxet Village Circa 1870. This area was first settled by
William 1 Arnold 9th Great Grandfather and his son-in-law William 1 Carpenter 8th Great Grandfather and
their families around 1638. Both families came with Roger Williams in 1636 to found the State of Rhode Island and The First Baptist Church in America. The large textile mill in the center
background sits on the site of Tom and Lori jones' former
house, 1977 to 1980. Read the Notable Ancestors blog for more information.
