  • Notes 
    • In Providence 1646; Newport 1650, where he was town treasurer in 1659/60. To Block Island in 1679. His will mentions his daughter Dorcas Dodge.

      From the Wikipedia article on Touro Synagogue Cemetery at Newport, Rhode Island:

      The cemetery was founded in 1677 or possibly earlier. In the Newport land records, a deed was recorded on 28 Feb 1677 for a certain parcel of land, 30 feet square, sold by Nathaniel Dickens to Mordecai Campannall and Moses Packechoe for a burial-place for the Jews of Newport, and this purchase may have been an addition to a cemetery that was already in existence as of that date.
