I received this suggestion as a place to visit on my upcoming genealogy road trip:
“Should you fine the resting place for Randall Wells and his wife Lois Maxson, might there be a way to take a photo or two? And maybe some info on how to find the site? Past information indicated Randall’s house may still stand nearby, and Randall’s gravestone may still exist. I live in California but get to the east coast from time to time, and would like to visit that site. Randall Wells served in the Rhode Island militia during the Revolution, starting out as an ensign, but was a captain when it ended. Good hunting!”
Well, I actually had the opportunity to be invited to see the Randall Wells house on my last trip up to Hopkinton in 2009. The house is located off of Route 3 not very far south of 95 on the East side of the Road. It can’t be seen from the road as it is set back from the road. There was a family still living in the house so if you go looking for it, please don’t trespass. Here are some pictures I took of the lovely old home.
