Boomer, Thomas, son of Martin and Amy (Thurston) Boomer, was born in Fail River, May 22, 1857. He is a member
of a family which is said by some historians to have been the third to settle in the vicinity of Fall River. His
father resided in Fall River all his life, following the occupation of a ship carpenter, and gaining a reputation
for industry and integrity. During his boyhood Mr. Boomer attended the public schools, acquiring a good common
school education, which was later supplemented by a course in the Holmes Business College. After leaving this institution
he engaged successively in farming, stone quarrying, the moulder's trade, and in the mill business. In 1880 he
purchased the farm in North Dartmouth on which he now resides, eight miles northwest of the city of New Bedford.
He has served as road surveyor and in other minor town offices.
