Subject: Re: Dec 15, 1870, N. Kingstown RI Town Records Destroyed 160 yrs of birth, marriage & death records!! Wickford National Bank Fire
Date: Saturday, April 02, 2016
Surnames: Crandall, Gorton
Some records that pre-dated the year when the two towns split were transcribed to South Kingstown but it seems to have been primarily wills. I found a legible transcription of the will of John Crandall (died in 1704) who m. Elizabeth Gorton in SK whereas the one in NK is sketchy. I noted a few other wills were copied as well.
