A Brief History of the Town of Glocester, Rhode Island.
Elizabeth A. Perry
Elizabeth Perry's original book, published in 1886, is reprinted here in its entirety with new material and indices by Edna M. Whitaker Kent. The book opens with an early history of the Providence County region, which was a portion of the Native Americans' Great Wilderness Trail. Proceeding with the organization of the town in the 1730s through the War for Independence and the War of 1812 up until 1885, the book records many subjects related to the life of the town.
