a. Note:   NI10041
One report has him purchasing land and settling inPortsmouth Township in what is now Newport, RI, while another lists him as one of thefirst settlers of Dartmouth (now New Bedford, MA) in 1642.Reportedly, Anthony later moved to Abermarle, NC. A thirdreport (info from Slocum family monument in Northville NYat Prospect Hill Cemetery) offers additional and, in somecases, conflicting info. To wit, Anthony was one of thefirst landowners in Cohannet (now Taunton, MA) in 1637 and,by 1670, was Lord Deputy and Proprietor of Carolina,residing in at Edenton in Albermarle County (now ChowanCounty, NC). This report puts Giles birth at 1638 in RhodeIsland and lists a sixth child, John, who, like Joseph wasborn in North Carolina. The first John apparently diedyoung in Taunton, is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
