Amos lived in Scituate, Rhode Island colony, before buying a house in what is now North Providence, owned previously by Gen. Esek Hopkins, a cousin. The house, with later additions, still stands on Admiral Street. Amos or Amos, Jr., signed the petition asking for a new township to be created from Providence, which became North Providence, on 25 February 1765. The town was first called Wenscutt. The petition was granted on 13 June. Amos was a surveyor of highways in 1754.1
