    From Wikipedia:

    Zachariah Allen (September 15, 1795 – March 17, 1882) was an American textile manufacturer, scientist, lawyer, writer, inventor and civil leader from Providence, Rhode Island. He was educated at Phillips Exeter Academy and at Brown University where he graduated in 1813.

    Allen became a textile manufacturer and in 1822 constructed a woolen mill in which he incorporated innovative fire-safety features and his own mechanical improvements. He also built the first hot-air furnace system for the heating of homes. In 1833 he patented his best-known device, the automatic cut-off valve for steam engines.

    He founded the Manufacturers' Mutual Fire Insurance Company in 1835, the forerunner of the present day insurance company FM Global.

    Allen was also a prolific writer of scientific texts and wrote numerous books and articles during his lifetime. [...]

    His older brother Philip Allen served Rhode Island as governor [1851-1853) and later as a United States senator (1853-1859).

    Zachariah married Eliza Harriet Arnold on 1 May 1817. Eliza (daughter of Welcome Arnold and Patience Greene) was born on 5 Oct 1796 in Providence, Providence, Rhode Island; died on 30 Aug 1873. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 7.  Eliza Harriet Arnold was born on 5 Oct 1796 in Providence, Providence, Rhode Island (daughter of Welcome Arnold and Patience Greene); died on 30 Aug 1873.

    Notes:

    She was the twin sister of Richard James Arnold, subject of the book North by South: The Two Lives of Richard James Arnold by Charles Hoffman and Tess Hoffman (Athens, Georgia: The University of Georgia Press, 1988). The publisher's descriptive copy follows:

    In 1823, Richard James Arnold, descendant of a Quaker family involved in the movement to abolish slavery in Rhode Island, married Louisa Gindrat of Bryan County, Georgia, and acquired a plantation called White Hall--thirteen hundred acres of rice and cotton land and sixty-eight slaves. Over the next fifty years, Arnold led two distinct, if never entirely separate lives, building through successive Georgia winters a profitable southern "paradise" rooted in human bondage, then returning each spring to his business interests and extended family in Rhode Island.

    Organized around a surviving plantation journal kept during two winters and one spring, North by South encompasses Arnold's career as a rice and cotton planter as it uncovers the increasingly difficult social and moral disguises that enabled him to move freely through two worlds.

    Notes:

    "[A] well-known Providence merchant who had participated in the Gaspee Affair in 1772." [Wikipedia]

    Also from Wikipedia:

    The Gaspee Affair was a very significant event in the lead-up to the American Revolution. HMS Gaspee was a British customs schooner that had been enforcing the Navigation Acts in and around Newport, Rhode Island in 1772. It ran aground in shallow water while chasing the packet ship Hannah on June 9 near what is now known as Gaspee Point in Warwick, Rhode Island. A group of men led by Abraham Whipple and John Brown attacked, boarded, and torched the ship.

    The event increased hostilities between the American colonists and British officials, following the Boston Massacre in 1770. The British had hoped to reduce tensions with the colonies by repealing some aspects of the Townshend Acts and working to end the American boycott of British goods. British officials in Rhode Island wanted to increase their control over the trade that had defined the small colony—legitimate trade as well as smuggling—in order to increase their revenue from the colony. But colonists increasingly began to protest the Stamp Act, Townshend Acts, and other British impositions that had clashed with the colony's history of rum manufacturing, maritime trade, and slave trading.

    This event marked the first act of violent uprising against the authority of the British crown in America, preceding the Boston tea party by more than a year and moving the colonies as a whole toward the war for independence.
