      Hi Fred,

      That makes more sense. Some of the Carrs were from Newport and probably Quaker. Thanks.

      Dave

      Hi Dave,
      Richard Waterman, one of the original proprietors of Providence and
      Warwick, is interred at Swan Point, on the East Side of Providence,
      along with several generations following him. A new stone was laid in
      1840 by his ggg-grandson (?), also Richard Waterman. He died in October
      26, 1673, but is not buried in Newport. That might be another RW??
      Anyway, I've seen the stone at Swan Point. :-)
