  • Notes 
    • "He is said to have been the first Washington County (R.I.) physician. Previous to his time the ministers were the physicians. He died of yellow fever, contracted while visiting a patient on a vessel from a southern port. His tombstone recounts that 'He was a physician of eminence, a universal philanthropist, and a friend to the distressed. His death is greatly lamented by all who knew him.' Buried at first in Westerly, R.I., his remains were removed in 1856 to Grove street cemetery, New Haven, Conn." [Genealogy of the Descendants of John Eliot, citation details below.]
