The furthest I can go in my RHode Island Gardiner family line in Albert C. Gardiner who's wife was Cordelia Dyer Northup. His father was Albert Gardiner who married a Roby Matteson. This is a strange first name but stayed in the family with Albert C's granddaughter Roby Gardiner. Albert C lived in North Kingstown and his parents may have lived in Exeter, RI but I can't seem to go any further! I can't seem to link them to another Gardiner family. ANy ideas?
