Fall River, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA Genealogy

Where is Fall River, Bristol, Massachusetts, USA?  At the time of the establishment of the Plymouth Colony in 1620, the area what would one day become Troy City was inhabited by the Pokanoket Wampanoag tribe, headquartered at Mount Hope in what is now Bristol, Rhode Island. The "falling" river that the name Fall River refers to is the Quequechan River (pronounced "quick-a-shan" by locals) which flows through the city, dropping steeply into the bay. Quequechan is a Wampanoag word believed to mean "Falling River" or "Leaping/Falling Waters.

3. FALL RIVER. [Pop. 6,738. Inc. 1803.]  
Fall River, once a part of Freetown, was called Troy, till 1834, when it was named after the outlet of a large pond, on which its numerous manufactories are situated.

The harbor is excellent, and its location, for both commerce and manufactures, almost unequalled.

A skeleton found here, with some brazen ornaments, unlike any known to our Indians, have led to some wild conjectures in regard to the original inhabitants of this spot. A Rock once in Dighton but now in Berkeley, with figures rudely carved on it, has also led to similar conjectures.

The chief manufactures are cotton and woollen goods, and nailss, and other articles of iron. Several whaling vessels belong to Fall River.

Distance from Taunton, 17 miles; 14 from New Bedford; and 49 from Boston.

Fall River Massachusetts, 1890  
FALL RIVER, a beautiful manufacturing city and port of entry in the southwest side of Bristol County, lies on the easterly shore of Mount Hope Bay and Taunton River. Freetown bounds it on the north and east; Dartmouth on the southeast; Westport, together with Pocasset in Rhode Island, on the south; and on the west are Mount Hope Bay and the town of Somerset, on the right bank of the Taunton River. Its assessed area is 18,272 acres, and which includes 2,607 acres of woodland.

The city proper is 49 miles south of Boston, 183 miles northeast of New York, 17 miles south of Taunton, 18 miles southeast of Providence, 14 miles west of New Bedford, and 18 miles north of New port. Along the whole extent of the water front run the tracks of the Old Colony Railroad, affording the best facilities for the transfer of freight and passengers between the cars and the numerous steamers that run to New York, Philadelphia and Providence. The Old Colony steamboats running daily between this city and New York are among the finest in the world for size, safety, and luxuriance of equipment. Trains also run direct to Providence by the railroad bridge over the Taunton River at the upper part of the town; while a branch from the New Bedford line of the Old Colony road enters the city at the greater elevation on the east.

The city has much rural territory, occupied by 83 farms; the product of these, in 1885, having a value of $102,260. The country is hilly, the elevations within five miles radius varying from tide-water to 355 feet above sea-level. The geological structure is granite, in which beds of iron-ore occur — a foundation which affords inexhaustible quarries of good building stone. The granite frequently crops out in extensive ledges; and numerous bowlders are scattered about, generally resting on the bed-rock, over which the soil is often shallow. The latter is composed principally of sand, gravel and gravelly loam.

My Great Great Grandfather, George Hornby Pearson, emigated here in 1893 after leaving my Great Great Grandmother, and Great Grandmother behind in Lancashire England.

George was born in 1851 in Haslingden. He married Margaret Ellen Russell in 1874, but appears to have left the family by 1881.

In 1893 he emigates from Liverpool with a Sarah "Pearson" and their son, James, who was born in 1886 in Burnley. (Sarah was born Sarah Preston, and she married a George Berry in 1868 having at least two children, William and Mary, with him. George Berry dies in 1882. There's no apparent marriage for Sarah and George Pearson).

On 9 July 1893, Geo H Pearson arrives in Boston onboard the "Bothnia" with Sarah and James Pearson, plus William and Mary Berry and a young woman called Annie Agnes Wilson who may just have been a family friend.

George dies of Pneumonia in Fall River on 17 April 1897 - found on the LDS website for Massachusetts deaths.

Sarah and James are seen in the 1900 census on Main Street, Fall River but I lose sight of them after this.

Does anyone have any further information on this family, or knows what happens to them?

My name is Yvonne . I am searching for my biological mother who I am certain was from Fall River. My mother was from a very strict family . She had 2 brothers . My mother was married but separated from her husband . I have an older half brother which stayed with his grandparents during this time . My mom got pregnant and her parents sent her to Brady Maternity Hospital in Albany New York to stay and have the baby . During this time I think she got back with previous husband . I believe this because I have met other women who were at the hospital at the same time. They say that her husband was present. I was born on febuary 3 1965 . I was put up for adoption through Catholic charities . My life has been rather good and as I get older I long for the closure of meeting someone who looks like me and having some sort of history . Thank-you

My maternal grandfather was operator of the BIG swing-draw railroad bridge on the Taunton River opposite Somerset when,in 1913, he accidentally closed the bridge on a small boat, sinking it and killing a young girl. Her father and brother escaped with their lives. I have newspaper clippings of the accident and the coroner's inquest.

The woman who took the man and his son in, and the teenager who helped her, were my FUTURE paternal grandmother, and her son (my father).

I am writing my life story, and would like specifications on the bridge itself, such as date it was built, how big it was, and, a GOOD picture of it.

It was demolished for scrap for WWII in 1944.
