Quaker Records - Dartmouth
I had great success with the following document found in the New Bedford, Bristol County, MA, Public Library in the Genealogy Room: "Leonard Papers, Book of Births, Marriages, and Deaths of Dartmouth, Westport and New Bedford MA". It covers the period you are researching. Another possible source I found was: "Vital Records of Rhode Island, 'Friends Record - Marriages, Births, Deaths'" by James N. Arnold (microfiche #6046912 which I located in the Family History Library.
Hope this helps.
