10 years research, surnames Knowles, Potter, Fish, Smith, Hazard, Gardiner, Gould, and allied families Rhode Island area, from 1600's to 1900's. Will be happy to help research original records.
I am particularly interested in information concerning Will Knowles, born 1862 Rocky Brook (Wakefield), Rhode Island, son of Ambrose Knowles and Sara Ann (Gould), grandson of James Knowles and Ann. He "moved West" and I have not been able to find anything further.
Will Knowles' siblings were Cora E Knowles (born 1857, married J.E.R.Crandall), Alvin D Knowles (born 1859, married Florence Lillian Kenyon born Andover, MA), Macey Archabelle Knowles (born 1864, married William Mayo), and Charles A Knowles (born 1870, married Winifred Grady of Blackstone, MA - possibly second wife).
I have a great deal of information on the old Rhode Island families, surnames too numerous to mention, particularly those from the South County area. Inquire at E-mail address.
