 Permanent link
 

Question:

I have a letter in my possession that was written from "Farley's Village, Massachusetts" in 1910.  I can not determine where this was, or what town this may have been a part of.

Answer:

Farley's Village is part of Erving, Franklin County, Massachusetts according to Historical Data Relating to Counties, Cities and Towns in Masssachusetts (Boston, NEHGS, 1997).  Erving also has a section known as Miller's Falls, and the town was also known as Erving's Grant or Hack's Grant.  Erving was incorporated as a town in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts April 17, 1838.
