Lost in the document trail

I like this phrase  #Lostinthedocumenttrail. It was on +Who Do You Think You Are? last night.  It's a nice way of saying hitting a #brickwall

 I'm currently lost and in the virtual woods of Northern RI looking for my Native American 4xG-Grandparents Benomi (Benjamin) Lippit died Lincoln 9/6/1891 parents Ceasar & Robie Coffee Lippitt are listed on the death register.  I can't find any information on them or the birth of his wife Nancy Coffee Lippitt died 12/29/1873; Their other son Emery Lippit died 8/8/1875 (age 24);
They are the parents of my 3xG-Grandfather Ernest E Lippitt who passed away Sept 21, 1916 (see the previous post). any help would be appreciated.

Small Town Death Records - 5 different family member's one page

I found a page from 1916 Death Records for Town North Providence Rhode Island, trying to decide which family to folder to file it in.  Looking at the page, there were no notes to specifically why I was pulling the information.  Now I know why... there are 5 persons on this one page. My great x3 grandmother (Taylor) and great 4x father (Lippit), as well as now a relation to my grandfather (Deluca); Then add two different Angell cousins for my husband's side.  I think I'm leaving it on my side.  Thought it was an interesting find.
