Governor Caleb Carr was elected Governor of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations in May, 1695. He died in Newport, Rhode Island on December 17, 1695, having served for just seven months. Carr was born in London, England, on December 9, 1616 and emigrated to North America in 1635, with his older brother, Robert Carr. He served the Colony as general treasurer. In 1687-88 he was justice of the General Quarter Session and Inferior Court of Common Pleas. Caleb Carr was twice married. He was buried in a small family burying ground in Newport, but on 8 September 1900, the bodies of Caleb and his second wife Mercy were disinterred and moved to the small private family cemetery family on the island of Jamestown. The graves are marked with the stones that marked their graves in Newport.
