      !SOURCE: Email from Hugh Hudson (email hidden) to Weldon Whipple, 18 May 2012:
      "Valentine was probably the first of John Wightman's family to immigrate to America. Valentine had been in the colony long enough in 1648 to master the Indian language, for in that year he is recorded as an interpreter at the Indian trading post of Richard Smith at Wickford in Narragansett county (now North and South, Kingstown, Rhode Island. Valentine was an endentured servant to Richard Smith until earning his freedom. Valentine's residence in Wickford explains why his brother George, when he arrived in Newport in 1654, immediately went to the Wickford area in Rhode Island."

His wife was Mary _______, her maiden name being not known. He died January 26th, 1701. She died May31st, 1718. His will of January 13th 1700 (1701 in today's calendar) mentions all his children."
