Fall River Visit Snippets

18 Nov

Lucy S. Macomber headstone at Oak Grove Cemetery.  She was a school chum of Lizzie’s (the class ahead of her) and listed as the 17th bequest in Lizzie’s will, receiving $1,000.

Fall River Locust Street residence of Grace Hartley Howe and Louis McHenry Howe.  He wrote her many letters to this address while he resided with Franklin and Eleanor in New York.

Grace’s Fall River cottage home on Martha Street with lovely view of the Taunton River.  She lived here during her years as Postmistress of Fall River and until her death in 1955.

Grace’s uncle, Jerome C. Borden had several daughters.  Cousin Bessy was a favorite and Grace’s mother wrote her daughter frequently about Bessy, Bertha and Fanny.

During the 1880’s & 1890’s it was fashionable to have yourself photographed in front of your home or business by a traveling postcard photographer.  The below image shows 3 ladies in front of this home only one door down from Central Congregational Church.

This is a similar view of that area today where both houses still stand.

The one nearest the now defunct Abby Grille, as shown below, has had some recent modifications.

It is now the “Old Firehouse Smoke Shop”

      You can use the “Categories” listed to the right of my blog page or can do Google searches specific to me and my blog like this:

      “phayemuss fall river Jerome Borden” (put in whatever name or subject you are interested in.)

      What specifically are you looking for? Perhaps I can help with your search. 🙂

      Thanks for writing. Faye
