LOCATION OF THE WARWICK HISTORICAL CEMETREY WK007 KNOWN AS THE ARNOLD LOT IN PAWTUXET RHODE ISLAND: FROM THE INTERSECTION OF POST ROAD AND WARWICK AVENUE IN THE VILLAGE OF PAWTUXET, RHODE ISLAND, GO SOUTH ALONG WARWICK AVENUE 0.5 MILE TO HARRISON ROAD ON THE LEFT, TURN LEFT AND GO EASTERLY ALONG HARRISON ROAD 0.6 MILE TO TO FAIR STREET, TURN RIGHT ON FAIR STREET AND GO SOUTHERLY ALONG FAIR STREET 0.3 MILE TO COLUMBIA AVENUE, TURN LEFT ON COLUMBIA AVENUE, THEN GO EASTERLY ON COLUMBIA AVENUE 400 FEET TO THE CEMETERY ON THE LEFT. THIS CEMETERY IS ALSO IDENTIFIED IN RHODE ISLAND'S "LISTING OF HISTORICAL CEMETERIES IN THE CITY OF WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND" WHICH IS PUBLISHED THE CITY OF WARWICK'S HISTORICAL SOCIETY. IT IS IDENTIFIED AS CEMETERY #7, ARNOLD LOT. COLUMBIA AVENUE, IN BACK OF A POWER POLE WITH A METAL NUMBER "5" STAMPED ON THE SIDE. IT IS 100 X 65 FEET WITH 68 GRAVES. SEVEN ARE VETERANS. I, SIMEON SMITH (BORN 1950), VISITED THIS CEMETERY IN SEPT OF 1994. I FOUND IT TO BE IN VERY POOR CONDITION. SOME OF THE HEADSTONES WERE LAYING DOWN AND SOME WERE BROKEN. PAWTUXET TO THIS DAY IS A SMALL VILLAGE . IT DID NOT HAVE COMMON CEMETERY IN THE 17 AND 18 HUNDREDS. EACH FAMILY OR A GROUP OF FAMILY'S HAD THEIR OWN CEMETERIES. UNFORTUNATELY PAWTUXET HAS GROWN UP AROUND AND OVER SOME OF THESE CEMETERIES OVER THE YEARS. QUITE A FEW OF THESE GRAVE SITES HAVE BEEN LOST FOREVER. THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF WARWICK IS TRYING TO CATALOG AN PRESERVE AS MANY OF THESE SITES AS POSSIBLE. THIS CEMETERY HAS HOUSES ON THREE SIDE AND COLUMBIA AVENUE ON THE OTHER. I'M AFRAID MANY OF THE ARNOLD HEADSTONES BEEN LOST FOR ONE REASON OR THE OTHER. THE APPROXIMATE GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION OF THIS CEMETERY IS LATITUDE 41 DEGREES, 52 MINUTES, 14 SECONDS, LONGITUDE 71 DEGREES, 23 MINUTES, 20 SECONDS.
PAWTUXET IS A VILLAGE IN KENT COUNTY. KENT COUNTY IS PART OF A LARGE AREA COMMONLY KNOW AS WARWICK AND IS SOUTH OF THE PAWTUXET RIVER. THE CITY OF WARWICK IS THE COUNTY SEAT OF KENT COUNTY AND IS WELL SOUTH OF THE PAWTUXET RIVER. PAWTUXET IS A VILLAGE THAT STRADDLES THE MOUTH OF OF THE PAWTUXET RIVER. THE NORTH SIDE OF THE RIVER IS CONSIDERED TO BE CRANSTON . HOWEVER, GENERALLY SPEAKING BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER ARE CONSIDERED TO BE PAWTUXET VILLAGE. YES THIS IS CONFUSING
NAME, BIRTH & DEATH DEATHS AND MARRIAGE DATE FOUND IN CHANDLER HOLMES SMITH AND SUSAN PARRAMORE SMITH'S DATED 1856. BIBLE RESIDES WITH SIMEON SMITH BORN 1950,
In response to the impressment of American seamen by British ships, Congress passed an Act for the Relief and Protection of American Seamen in 1796. The Act required customs collectors to maintain a record of all United States citizens serving on Unites States vessels. Each seaman, once registered with the customs collector, was given a Seaman's Protection Certificate. These certifites vouched for the citizenship of the individual and included identifying information such as height, complexion, place of birth, and in some cases, eye and hair color. The intention of these certificates was to discourage impressment. The Rhode Island Historical Society has six volumes of "Register of Protections Granted to American Seaman" from 1796-1870. These papers are part of the United States Custom House Papers housed in the Manuscript Division of the Rhode Island Historical Library at 121 Hope Street, Providence, Rhode Island. The volumes contain the seaman's name, age, height, place of birth, and color of complexion. Remington Smith, was found in Book 2, Page 26, date of certification - June 14, 1800, age - 18, complexion - light, place of birth - Warwick, R.I. and in Book 4, page 62, date of certification - November 16, 1807, age - 25, complexion - light, place of birth - Warwick, R.I..
