In Reply to: Faria(s) from Sonim by Tony Faria of 415

Hi Tony: My father told me that our ancestors hailed from Lisbon, as I recall. That our name used to be "FARIA" but when my grand-fther came to Fall River Mass, he put an "S" on it as a way of separating him from his brother in a family feud over Property in Portugal. My Aunt always addressed me as "Katherine Faria" in her letters to me, as she never used the "s" on her maiden name.....
