    Notes 
    • A tradition often repeated states that soon after the marriage of George and Elizabeth Hall Babcock he threw a long rope over his dwelling house; he remained at one end of the rope, while his wife, Elizabeth, went as requested to the other side of the house and tried to pull the rope over, but without success. George called out, "Pull, Betty, pull harder!" Again she struggled, but with no better results than before. George then called for her to come to him; the two, taking hold of the same end of the rope, easily pulled it over the house. The lesson taught was that when husband and wife pull apart no satisfactory results can be reached, but when both pull together everything is easy.

    • (tradition says that John and his wife Mary eloped from Newport, settled upon the east bank of the Pawcatuck River on Massatuxet Cove (now what is now Avondale, town of Westerly, R.I.) with no neibors but the friendly Indians, and that they were not discovered by their parents for several years. Much poetry and romance has been written about this tradition, but as no history has been found to establish it as a fact, and as authentic records seem clearly to disprove the statement, the elopement story must be classed as fiction.)
