There is a Charles Weed listed in Newport RI...on the directories his occupation is given as simply and engineer. In the 1910 Census, he is listed as Chief Engineer/Passenger Boat. The only thing is...he is not a bachelor, he is married with children. Newport and Fall River are relatively close to each other...Whenever I see people looking for someone in these areas, I always try border hopping. Check out the Newport Charles Weed and see if you think it could be him. What was his brother's name?
