From: Swamp Yankee from Mystic, A Family, A Region and It's Roots, By James H Allyn, Page 50:

George Babcock [9], John's fourth son, did not inherit, so he went to work on the farm of William Hall, Jr. [10] at Kingston. Like his father before him George married the boss's daughter Elizabeth Hall in 1694. Eleven years later they and twenty-six others bought the Shannock Purchase around the headwaters of the Pawcatuck River in the present town of Richmond. The Babcocks built on the south side of Shannock Hill, with their land running down to the river along Beaver River. Like his father before him George was a Deputy to the General Court. He did well with the farm; for when he died in 1751 at the age of seventy-eight, he left 300 Pounds to the Seventh-Day Church, and farmland and money to his five children. His daughter Mary married Thomas Potter, Jr.
In later years when Swamp Yankees turned from farming to manufacturing, many of the Seventh-Day people of Westerly took the lead. The Babcock Printing Press Company, later owned by George P. Fenner, was for many years the leader in its field, starting with a Gold Medal at the Crystal Palace in London in 1855. Babcock and Wilcox became the most famous boiler makers in the world, and continued to grow.
