  • Notes 
    • He graduated at Brown University, studied law at Litchfield, and settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, 1820, where for forty-two years most of his active life was spent, especially in the development of its public schools, a greater portion of that time officially connected with them. He returned to his early home in Warwick in 1862, where he resided on the old ancestral estate. He was elected Lieut.-Governor of Rhode Island in 1866, and again in 1867, with Gen. Burnside as Governor.
