The Thomas Clarkson Family of Massachusetts Updated November 9, 2000
About Our Family Research
I have just begun to research my family origins. My father, George Clarkson of New Bedford, MA was the son of Alfred and E. (Coates) Clarkson. Alfred was the sone of Thomas and E. Clarkson. Goerge had many siblings, some of which I have no information on, including their names.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has information on the Clarkson and/or Coates family. They lived in the Globe area, I think, of Fall River in the late 1800's or the learly 1900's. My grandfather, Alfred Clarkson, was born in Fall Rivr, RI, which is a bit of land that is now Tiverton, and was passed from MA to RI at some point in his lifetime.
