Finding my ancestors that lived in Rhode Island 

who Served in the American Revolution

John GOULD, also from South Kingstown, RI served in the Revolutionary War for Rhode Island. The DAR database lists him as serving "Under Babcock" (Capt. Babcock's Regiment) as a Private. He was born between 1738 and 1748 and died in 21 Sept. 1828. He is buried in the Gould-Tourgee Lot (South Kingstown #35). His wife was Mary McCoon STEDMAN. They both have gravestones. 

Picus Austin was born (and served) in Rhode Island in 1740 and died in New York in 1826. His wife's name was Grizzell TARGEE/TOURGEE). She was part of my large TOURGEE family that lived in South Kingstown and were Huguenots. The DAR databases lists his rank as private, serving in Col. Christopher Olney's Regiment. He is buried with his wife in the Seventh Day Adventist Cemetery in Darien, Genesse NY. They have gravestones.

The rest of potential men who served were Theodoty Hall, Jr., Nathaniel Perkins, Jr.  and Isaac Peckham but I can find no evidence to include them in my list of men served.
