From what I understand our branch of the Folgers were whalers.They lived on Nantucket,but there was a fire on the waterfront and many left. Our line went to Portugal. Jesse S. was born in Portugal about 1876 and died January 28, 1941 in Dartmouth. His parents were Jesse S. and Kittaria Oliveria both born in Portugal.Theresa Garcia Folger was born on the island of Pico in the Azores about 1881. She died on January 3, 1960 in Dartmoth,her father was John Garcia of Pico,Azores mother unknown. My grandfather was Jesse S. Folger born Oct. 17, 1903 died Mar. 29, 1984. My father is also Jesse S. Folger. Snce my grandparents divorced when my father was 5 I don't know much about the folger family. I believe Jesse and Theresa had 3 sons Antone,John and Jesse.
