Dr John Mawney
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 3, 1830
Cranston
Providence County
Rhode Island, USA

John was the son of John Mawney and Amey Gibbs of Providence, Rhode Island. He was married first (notice in Hopkinton, Rhode Island, 2 December 1775) to Nancy Wilson, the daughter of a Dr. Wilson. He married second Elizabeth P. Clarke, b. 1765, d. Cranston 20 April 1803. The death date on his tombstone appears to be in error, because his obituary appeared on 2 March 1830 in the Providence Phenix, the day before his tombstone death date. He was a physician, and a Colonel in the Rhode Island Militia. He was a member of the party that burned the British vessel Gaspee in 1772, and following the incident removed a bullet from Lieutenant Duddingston, the Vessel's commander. Fifty years after the American Revolution, Dr. Mawney was among the four veterans of the Gaspee incident still living, and was honored by the State of Rhode Island. (Thank you Stan Arnold
