  1. [S7] Obituary of Samuel Shove, submitted by his son Josiah Shove, pages 223-225, although some of the lineage information, especially of the early Shoves in America, has proved to be incorrect. (Names mixed up and at least one generation skipped.) Samuel's son Josiah likely wrote parts of the obituary from his memory of stories his father had told him. And, of course, neither of them had any first hand information of anything before Samuel's birth in 1789. From this researcher's point of view, other sources should be considered more reliable -- especially on events and people of the 1600s and 1700s, Necrology of the Rhode Island Society for the Encouragement of Domestic Industry, for the year 1874, Providence, Rhode Island, LHB Notebook - Books, News, & Online, Santa Barbara, California.
