The photo was sent to the Webmaster by JESSICA SYMMES ( now Jessica Bowen ), sister of Judson Symmes, and in her e-mail she told us:
"I stumbled upon your website and am thrilled to find other descendants of Zechariah Symmes. I was born Symmes, am now married, and can proudly report that our branch of the Symmes tree is still going strong – including four boys with the Symmes surname under the age of 10. I have a copy of the Vinton book that belonged to my grandfather. Mine is still in fairly good condition. I would love to see an updated version!"And so would all of us...
"Our common ancestor settled in the Boston area and most of our branch is still here. For the most part, we live in and around Danvers, Massachusetts, about 30 minutes north of Boston. Most of my aunts, uncles and cousins were born in Salem, MA."
Our correspondent Jessica Symmes teaches History and is seen here with husband Christopher Bowen and daughters Deborah and Rachel. The names of their Dolls have not been disclosed.
"I find it interesting that one of the pictures on your website shows a boy being confirmed in the Episcopal church. Our branch is also Episcopalian! Almost all our family weddings and baptisms have taken place at Calvary Episcopal Church in Danvers and in fact, my parents met in the youth group there. I wonder if that religious affiliation is common among Symmes..."
Any comments to the Webmaster please.
