Any descendants of Rhode Island's Page families?

My ancestor, William Page (Page-5386) served extensively in the Revolutionary War, both on land and at sea. Unfortunately, he's also one of my brick walls; he was born in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1753, according to his gravestone, census, and death records, but I  have been able to find no records of his birth or parentage. This despite the fact that there are several Page families in the area. Anybody have any clues?

I found William Page in the NSSAR register.  Here is the link:

Ancestor # P-264598.   Unfortunately, there is no new information in the record except maybe the cemetery.  But every little bit of info can help in your research.  Let us know if you have any success.

Hi, Linda.  Have you requested to join the 1776 project?  If William served in the Revolutionary War he may have the NSSAR distinction.  I have done this whenever I find an ancestor who served.  I think it is a wonderful tribute.  This doesn't really answer your question but might be fun.  By the way, I am a descendent of the Taber family of Tiverton, RI.  Some of them also served in the militia.  Best of luck.  Carolyn
