Henry, it is unlikely you will find an answer with a simple description
like this, although the location of the pear may be your best lead- if
there is any information of what varieties were grown in your region over a
century ago (you could ask the librarian of the land grant university in
your state if there is any literature on the subject).  In the end, the
chances are good that it is a seedling, in which case it is whatever you
want to call it.
