  • Notes 
    • After being discharged from the service and returning home he took over the mail route from the Post Office in Washington to Noose Neck.  He devoted much of his life in the service of West Greenwich.  He was elected to the Town Council, the Board of Tax Assessors, and was also Town Sergeant and Overseer of the Poor.  He was chosen as a member of the Veteran's Monument Committee that erected the memorial to the veterans of the First World War at Noose Neck. He ran a tavern located a few hundred feet from the Kitt's Corner Road turnoff of Route 3.  Many years later it was converted to a filling station."
