Anthony, Everett F., son of Caleb G. and Margaret (McNelly) Anthony, was born in Fall River, April 17, 1857. He obtained his education in the public schools and the Fall River High School, and during part of the time he was attending school was a live and energetic carrier boy for the Fall River Daily News. After leaving school he worked for George H. Hawes, a cloth broker, for one year. In 1874 he became an errand boy for the Old Colony Railroad Company. Being attentive to duty he soon won promotion and passed onward from one post of duty to another until he reached the head of the freight department of the road. In July, 1893, when the Old Colony Company and the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad were consolidated, he became local agent for that company and the Old Colony Steamboat Company, and has since held that position. During his term of service the amount of freight business has greatly increased owing to the rapid growth of Fall River. Mr. Anthony is a member of King Philip Lodge of Masons, Royal Arch Chapter and Godfrey de Bouillon Commandery. He is also a member of Pocasset Council of the Royal Arcanum. Mr. Anthony was married to Hannah Davis, of Fall River, in October, 1893. They have one daughter, Elsie D. Anthony.
