    Notes 
    • Wightman Heritage: "Valentine Whitman (Wightman) had been in the colony long enough in 1648 to master the Indian language for in that year, he is recorded as an interpreter at the Indian trading post of Richard Smith at Wickford in the Narragett country (now town North and South Kingstone, RI). This will in no doubt, explain why the father, John, and his other sons arrived in Newport and immediately went to the Wickford area of Rhode Island."
      Probably came to America in 1648, since he had been employed for six years at Richard Smith's trading post at Wickford in the Narragansett country when his father and four of his brothers joined him.
