       I have both Arnolds and Albros way back in my family tree. I am a direct descendant of Stephen Arnold, brother to R.I. Colonial Governor Benedict Arnold. I have two Albro lines that go in to my Congdon line, this is through an Elizabeth Albro. In fact Arnolds and Albros are through my maternal grandmother.

      I'm very interested, Gloria. I'm trying to honor her by
      putting her in place with the other historians of East
      Greenwich. She has a DAR bronze at her grave with her
      name on it , so I think that and having her lineage
      gives her a lot of credibility.

      It would be nice to have a picture, but at this point I
      just want to know who she was.

      Thank you for any help.
