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 trying to find out some information on my family. I know that my great great grandfather owned either a auto parts store or dealership in or around the 1920-1960. I was trying to get information on both him and the store for a project for school I am working on. I only have one picture of him in a Hudson racecar from where he raced on dirt tracks in or around Northfork WV in the 1930's or so.
Any information would be great!
