    • (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.)
