RHODE ISLAND

The Rhode Island file contains about 325 surname entries. Rhode Island is the smallest state in size but developed a manufacturing base that attracted workers from England, Ireland and Scotland in that order.  The first successful power-driven cotton-spinning jenny in North America started operating at Pawtucket in 1790 and the Slater Mill built in 1793 was the birthplace of the textile industry in the US. (This Mill has been preserved as a textile museum).
The populaton of Daltons in Rhode Island was quite small but increased dramatically between 1870 and 1880. If you have data to contribute to this file, particularly of Canadian Dalton emigrants, it will be most welcome.
