I'm interested in Austin families that originated in Rhode Island. Of the 12 families that I have been working on the Robert Austin Family of Kingstown is the largest. In fact many of the other families might be un-connected branches of this family.

I also run the Austin-Austen DNA project where we have many Austin that we think has RI connections.

The Austin Families Association is having a Austin Convention in RI the last week of September this year. Check the website for details.

Surnames of interest Ellis
RI Countys of interest Kent, Washington
Samuel Ellis, born 1710 in North Kingstown, is as far back as I can go with my Ellis ancestry. I'm trying to determine if Theophilus Ellis was his father. Then, I'd like to determine when this Ellis family arrived in America and where, and how they got to Rhode Island. Then, I want to determine from whence they came in Europe. I'll take all the help I can get, and perhaps people can learn from me, too.

RI Countys of interest All
Specifically, looking for any information on Jenkinses from Nantucket who first stayed in Providence for a time (1770-1785) before moving on to Hudson, NY. These would include families of Thomas and Seth Jenkins and perhaps others.

Thank you.
