I sent my message regarding "1st Providence Troop" and 3rd Cranston Troop"
incorrectly, I believe more acurate would be "The First Providence" and the
"The Third Cranston". It also could very well be that at least the First
Providence dates back to the Rhode Island Boy Scouts which was started around
the beginning of the BSA and later merged about six years later with the BSA?
The Rhode Island Boy Scouts still exists on paper at least as the owners of
the famous Yawgoog Scout Reservation. If anyone had an early Rhode Island
Scout Stuff I might be interested
