"The list of marriages by Elder John GROTON of Warwick, cover a period from January 1, 1854, to May 4, 1792. The list as here given was printed in a newspaper, the Pawtuxet Valley Gleaner, published at Riverpoint, R.I., during the summer and fall of 1879. In this introduction to the first portion the editor said: 'They are 281 in number. The names of the parties married and the dates of their marriages were recorded in this book by Mr. GROTON, who is supposed to have been the only Elder residing in Warwick at that time. He was pastor of the Six Principle Baptist Church, and lived in a gambrel roof house, now standing, and located near the East Greenwich line, on the main road leading from Apponaug to Greenwich.' The value of this list as a contribution to the history of the people of the town of Warwick is apparent at a glance."
