      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. :-)
