  • Notes 
    • Falmouth is located on Cape Cod, and was first home to the Wampanoag Indians, meaning “People of the East.” They called Falmouth “Suckanesset,” meaning “where the black wampum is found.” Black wampum is the interior shell of the quahog and is actually shades of purple. The Indians made beads and jewelry items to use for trading.

      Falmouth Heights was originally known as “Great Hill” and the area was first used as a summer camp in the early 1600’s by Queen Awashonks, ruler of the Narragansett Indians. A large number of implements and burying grounds found show that Falmouth was once largely populated by Indians. It is believed that small-pox brought from England in later years nearly caused extinction.

      The first white man to arrive in Falmouth when it was still virgin woods was Bartholomew Gosnold. He named it after his home port, Falmouth, England. Falmouth’s first settlement was started in 1660 by a group sympathetic to the Quakers. The town became incorporated in 1686.

      As their mothers had died, Hannah reared Moses' children from his first two marriages. The oldest was Abiah who was 15 years old, and the youngest was Sylvanus, who was about 5 years old. There is no record of Hannah having any children of her own.
