Sam Patch, the Famous Jumper by Paul E. Johnson: Sam Patch grew up in Pawtucket in the 1820's as a mill hand in the textile industry. He made a name for himself when he jumped 70' into the tumultuous waters below Pawtucket Falls. In 1827 he repeated the same stunt in Patterson, N.J. and again in front of an even larger crowd in 1829 at Niagara Falls. The daredevil from Pawtucket had earned himself the nickname of the 'Jersey Jumper'.
