There's a little island named Patience

in Narragansett Bay, Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
I'm not sure if this island was named for the Patience I learned about this weekend, but it was named by Roger Williams, who was good friends with her family about the same time that this amazing little girl moved from the Massachusetts Bay Colony to Rhode Island.
There's a little blurb about Patience over at Segullah today.
