  • Notes 
    • There is a tradition in the Narragansett family of Sweets that their ancestors, including James the first immigrant to Rhode Island, had been long gifted by nature with the faculty of setting dislocated and broken bones. James reared a large family of children, among whom was Benoni, who died at the age of ninety, June 19, 1751. To him a son James was born, June 18, 1688. This James and his father Benoni both possessed the "natural" gift of setting dislocated bones, but to what extent it was exercised is not definitely known.
