Beyond THE SYMMES MEMORIAL

An E-mail from 2002

Our cousin Kirk Symmes [ 9th Generation after Zechariah Symmes ] sent the following e-mail to the Webmaster after visiting Aylmer, Quebec in 2002:-

"Gay and I went to church here on Sunday, July seventh. The small congregation was ecstatic at seeing the great grandson of the man who gave the land that the church is built on. As a matter of fact, I will never come closer to being a celebrity than the reception we got in Aylmer. Best Wishes, Kirk"

A few years later, in 2006, our cousin Kirk Symmes emailed us a photo of his grandchildren, 11th Generation after Zechariah Symmes:-

"This watercolor was painted from photos, all taken at two thirty in the afternoon facing south, by the respective parents, and the finished painting was given to Gay and me by the children at Christmas a few years ago. Louise arranged for the artist and it was a total surprise. The photo of our house was taken by a neighbor of ours. It was all a surprise and needless to say, it is a cherished painting hanging in our living room, and it is a remarkable likeness of all of the grandchildren. Kirk"
