            The 1860s school ledger was purchased from James Tyson in 1967. The 1827 school bill was purchased from old News of North Kingstown in 1999. The provenance of the 1822 and 1823 tax records is unknown, but they probably arrived with similar records from many other towns that are also dated 1822 and 1823.
