Thank you so much for the info you sent about a doctress. I will
contact you off list and perhaps when you are in the area we can get
Perhaps I can enlighten you also. The full name of RI is The State of
Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. And we did indeed have many
slaves in RI. We were the end of the Golden Triangle for the
importation of slaves and molassas. The house that I volunteer at
has had many slaves over the years. There were 17 plantations in the
southern---western side of RI. We shipped up and down the eastern
seaboard as well as to Europe. It was not until 1790 that slavery was
outlawed as a import in RI. Just about the time the southern
plantations were coming into their own.
I will email youi off list.
Hope to hear from others who have information on this subject,
everything is welcome. To educate ones self takes many helpers.
