The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (commonly known as Rhode Island) is geographically the smallest state in the United States, and the state with the longest official name. Rhode (pronounced "Road") Island is part of the New England region, and was one of the thirteen original American colonies that declared independence against British rule to begin the American Revolution.
I am curious about how E Weyhe Road got its name. My grandfather's name was Eiba Weyhe and his family resided at Cawtawba Island. I would appreciate any family history that you could provide. Thank you. Sincerely, Nancy Esidor
