Easily the most accessible book on the Mowry family of Providence is William A. Mowry, The Descendants of Nathaniel Mowry, of Rhode Island (Providence, R. I.: Sidney S. Rider, 1878), available online from <http://www.usigs.org/library/books/ri/Mowry1878/00PageImagesMwr/>. Equally important are the shorter studies on specific alliances in the early generations, such as Mrs. John E. (Florence Harlow) Barclay, Mary² Bartlett (Foster) Morey: Her Husbands and Children, American Genealogist 32 (1956): 193-6, and Paul W. Prindle, Comments and Corrections: Bumpus–Morey, American Genealogist 44 (1968): 232-5. The most recent synthesis of this lineage is Dean Crawford Smith, The Ancestry of Emily Jane Angell, 1844–1910, ed. Melinde Lutz Sanborn (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1992), 414-34.
