Here is what I have on my GreatGrandfather John Appleton who married Carrie Thomas. His was John, Jr, age 29, when he married Carrie, age 20, on July 13, 1895 in Central Falls, RI. They were residents of Cumberland, RI at the time. His occupation was listed as HEATER. Place of birth was Providence (John) and Cumberland (Carrie). His father was John, Sr. and mother was Margaret Tierny or Tierney. Do not know if there is a connection to your Appletons.
