About the Book

An excellent source of Who's Who in the southernmost two counties of 17th-19th century Rhode Island. Hard cover, very well printed on glossy stock, and contains many photo engravings of the prominent people mentioned. Most of the copies I've seen were starting to come apart, due to the massive size and deteriorating binding -- it's at least 5 inches thick. A very good source for genealogy where one's roots are in southern Rhode Island. I don't know how Cole covered so much time and area, but I haven't found any real source errors and he has information I haven't seen anywhere else. Very valuable!
