Gazetteer of the States of Connecticut and Rhode Island
Gazetteer of the States of Connecticut and Rhode Island. John C. Pease and John M. Niles. (1819) 2007. In this very early gazetteer, the authors compiled an exhaustive description of Connecticut and Rhode Island as of 1819, including the topography, history, and statistics of each county, town, city, burrough, and village in the State. Of special interest to genealogists, the authors include frequent biographies of the town founders, early settlers, ministers, and other prominent citizens.
There is also much detail about the manufacturing, agricultural, fisheries, and other commercial interests in each town as well as a description of local governments, schools, churches, navigable waterways, and local native American tribes. Two fascinating early maps, one of each State, are also included in high resolution.
