|Birth: ||Nov. 23, 1611|
|Death: ||Sep. 7, 1685|
Rhode Island, USA
Daughter of William Arnold and Christian Peake Arnold.
Her memorial in Mineral Spring Cemetery is a cenotaph commemorating her along with her brothers Stephen and Benedict Arnold. (He is not the same Benedict that is known as a traitor of America. Her brother Benedict succeeded Roger Williams, founder of RI, as president of the colony, becoming Govenor in 1644 under the charter granted by King Charles II. Roger Williams' family and Benedict were also related by marriage.)
The Sep 7,1685 death date on her cenotaphic memorial is actually the date of death of her husband William Carpenter. Neither her death date nor place of burial is known, and she may have outlived her husband, having been named in his will of Feb 10,1679/80. (He wrote a codicil at the death of his son in 1683/4, so lack of a further codicil suggests the possibility she may have outlived him.) She and her husband were almost certainly buried on their homestead, located in present-day Cranston,RI.
Children: Joseph Carpenter, Lydia Carpenter Smith, Ephraim Carpenter, Priscilla Carpenter Vincent, William Carpenter, Timothy Carpenter, Silas Carpenter, and Benjamin Carpenter.
