Marriage of Stephen Olney (d. 4 Nov 1754) and Mary Whipple (b. 28 Feb 1714/15) in Rhode Island (probably in Smithfield), parents of Stephen, Benjamin, and Sarah.

I have gathered this information from the books "Captain John and Sarah Whipple", "A Genealogy of the Descendants of Thomas Olney", and "The Coggeshalls in America”, as well as an article in The American Genealogist Volume 54 page 44.

What I have not been able to find are any primary sources for this information -- birth or marriage or death records. I have written to Smithfield, searched the NEHGS databases, checked Arnold's 21 volume set of books, checked cemetery lists, and searched everywhere on the Internet I could think of.

Can anyone help me on this, please?
