As I looked through the last residences of my great grandfather and uncles I saw several ended up in the Norwich, Killingly, New London area.
Again, an assumption, but I am sure there were relations that guided those moves. But, for a certainty, in the book, The Wights, John Wight is listed as Eleazars father. Is this the John Wight I mentioned ? I am not completely sure but Benjamin appears to be the first to R.I. and all were buried in now lost graves such as Tunk Hill in Scituate and I am sure some were covered when the Scituate reservoir was created.
As far as that, that na John Wight was Eleazars father, even the records kept by Scituate and Providence provide no further information. The earliets R.I. record I could find was for George Anson Wight, my great great grandfather, 1813 to 1890, who listed his father as Sylvanus Wight and his mother as Adeline Hakes who died in Norwich and West Killingly, CT. His grandfather was the Eleazar we are talking about who died in Scituate.
Most all other decendants are buried in Woonsocket, Coventry, Cranston and Warwick.
That is where the solid trail stops. Sorry I don't have more.
