Little research has been done to identify the early settlers of Albion. With the aid of a grant from the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and the support of the Blackstone Valley Historical Society, I have researched and documented one of these early settlers, Thomas Lapham, along with his brothers and their descendants. The title of this monograph is Anatomy of a Village: The Influence of the Lapham Family on the Development of Albion, Rhode Island. The link to this monograph is listed below.
In addition to, and supporting of, the monograph, a one-hour narrated presentation has been developed that is currently available on YouTube.
