    Fascinating documents. Thanks for the transcriptions. I appreciate, of course, that several have to do with Lawtons. 🙂

  2. Christine Ellis says:

    I am trying to find any information on the Cornell Family.

      We do have some documents that include members of the Cornell family. “Killed Strangely” is a book about the Cornell trial that may be available through interlibrary loan. Members of the Cornell family were in town recently to clear the family graveyard.

  3. Beth Golden says:

    thank you so much! Will be most helpful in my researching of Brayton, Coggeshall, Fish, Freeborn, etc. ancestors, all early settlers of Portsmouth.

  4. Doug Thornton says:

    Has “Records of the Island of RI 1638-1644” been transcribed?
    I am particularly interested in page 62, John Thornton’s land grant.

      That document is from the Rhode Island Archives. In the past we have been transcribing documents that are in our collection. I don’t know if anyone has transcribed that document, but you could try to do it from the digital image. I know that transcription is a skill, but we would share any transcription that you might do.
