Little Neck
We came to this rather remote spot in East Providence, Rhode Island, to pay our respects to a really distinguished branch of our family: the Brown(e)s and the Willetts, who came on the Mayflower, but not that Mayflower—it was a popular name in the shipping community—a decade after the Pilgrims. Grandpa (eight greats) Thomas Willett was the first mayor of New York City, and his father-in-law, our nine-greats-grandpa Worshipful John Brown(e) is buried in the same enclosure. One of the original Pilgrims, Elizabeth Tilley Howland, whose daughter married one of the Browns, lies nearby.
