The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Providence, Rhode Island which was founded in 1636 by my 10th Great Grandfather Roger Williams.
The route goes through Connecticut and on to Rhode Island.
Not far from this grist mill is Ellington, Connecticut where my Braman ancestors lived. They were blacksmiths, so it would be interesting to learn about the history of the trade in this area. Perhaps someday I can make a physical trip to this museum.
The remains of Roger Williams also lie below the statue, after having been moved twice since his original burial in 1683.
Unfortunately the only time I have been in Rhode Island was before I knew that I was a descendant of Roger Williams. I need to take a trip there again someday and visit these places.
I have now caught up on documenting my Virtual Hike. I made it to Providence only a couple weeks ago
I am now heading toward a historically significant place where I want to virtually be on November 21.
Will I make it there in time?
