Rhode Island Events Relating to HOAR, 1635-1850

Rhode Island Events Relating to HOAR, 1635-1850

Selected by Christopher S. Lyttle, July 2002, from:

James Newell Arnold, compiler, Vital record of Rhode Island, 1636-1850 : a family register for the people (Providence, R.I.: Narragansett Historical, 1891-1912).

I have attempted to identify in Arnold's important work all events mentioning the surname Hoar. The usual caveats apply. While I have tried to make a faithful copy of the relevant parts of VR of RI, 1636-1850, and I'm sure Arnold did his best in abstracting the original records, you should use these notes as pointers to the original records. Also, please note, the copy I worked from was not of the best quality and I have marked some text with question marks where I am uncertain regarding the reading. In volumes 1-6, and in various other volumes, the numbers in parentheses at the left margin are the volume and page of town vital record or other source document from which the information was obtained. [The text in square brackets is information added from the original records.]
