Attached is a picture taken at the Simmons family reunion about 1908. The picture(a copy)
was mailed to me from the granddaughter of my Great Aunt Bertha Simmons Hofer(1900-1985).
Bertha had identified some of the people with numbers on the front and names on the back.
I hope the numbers are clear enough to read.
1) Bertha Simmons
2) Leon Simmons (my grandfather)
3) Hazel Simmons
4) Mildred Simmons
5) Ruth Simmons
1 - 5 are siblings
6) Adeline Simmons (mother of 8, 11, 12, and 13)
7) Grace Merrill Simmons (Chauncey's wife)
8) Jane Burdick Collar
9) Lena Simmons (Daughter of Frank & Cora Peck Simmons)
10) Cora Peck Simmons (Frank's wife)
11) Charles Simmons
12) Frank Simmons
13) Chauncey Coe Simmons
11, 12, and 13 are brothers, 8 is older half sister (same mother , different father)
I am hoping that someone can identify others in the picture through pictures you may
I know from articles in the paper that Chauncey and family attended the Baltus A Simmons
Family Reunions that went on at least into the 1920's.
