In a letter I have from the 1850's my ancestor speaks of farming in a place in Massachusetts I have never heard of. Can you tell me how I might be able to determine where, or where was a place called "Antasawamack Neck"?
The place you mentioned I believe is the ancient name of a place in Plymouth County in the town of Mattapoisett. This town itself was created in 1857 from the town of Rochester, Mass. Within the boundaries of Mattapoisett is a region known as Antaassawomock Neck, which I believe is the location you are referring to. The source for this reference comes from the following publication I use for reference: Historical Data Relating to Counties, Cities and Towns in Massachusetts (Boston, NEHGS, 1997).
