new Robert Coles article
Hello, Diogenes99; as an avid consumer of early Rhode Island history, I was very interested with, and impressed with, your article on Robert Coles. I know of Coles well because of his association with the Patuxet settlers, and I was well aware of his history of drunkenness. Your article on Coles is very well-sourced, and appears to include all the most important, except for one surprising omission. You do not include Anderson's Great Migration Begins (1995). What this work points out is that Coles had two wives, both named Mary, and this fact was revealed by his son, John, during the settlement of Coles's estate. Coles had three children with his first wife, Mary (unknown), and four more children with his second wife, Mary Hawkshurst. Another source that you probably want to take a look at is Harriet Beach's 1992 study of Matthias Harvye (the second husband of Mary Hawkshurst), found in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. And there is one other source that I'm sure would be very revealing, and that is the compiled correspondence of Roger Williams. I perused this two volume set a few years ago, and was overwhelmed at the amount of, and importance of, this material. I hope to once again, some day, borrow this magnificent work, to make significant edits to some of the biographies of the early Rhode Island settlers.

Hi again. Glad to see you've nominated the Coles article for GA. Just to set expectations, that process is always backlogged and it may take a while before a volunteer gets to it. Sometimes it's a matter of days or a couple weeks, but it can also take months. If you'd be interested in another wiki-related project in the meantime, you may want to check out Wiki Loves Monuments, an initiative to upload photos of historically significant places/structures/monuments. The Rhode Island page is pretty sparse at the moment, but when I look through some of the National Register of Historic Places listings in Rhode Island, for example, I see several missing and many more that could use better photos. I live in NY these days and sometimes take pictures of local sites here, but there are a lot of Wikipedians taking pictures of NY and relatively few photographing Rhode Island. Just a thought. :) — Rhododendrites talk \\ 05:20, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

I see that you moved the article on Tim Foster to a new title, and turned the old title into a disambiguation page. It appears that one part of the process which you haven't completed is to deal with the many incoming links, as described at WP:USURPTITLE. You'll see the incoming links listed here. You may, of course decide that rather than dealing with all those links you may wish to revert your move. --David Biddulph (talk) 07:20, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
- @David Biddulph: It won't revert until an admin deletes the redirect with the same name. Sorry for the mess. Diogenes99 (talk) 13:56, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
