Photo of Robert Reuben Simmons

Robert Reuben Simmons
abt. 1820 – 1903

Robert Reuben was the greatgrandfather of Ethel Simmons Hennesy, husband of Frances Smith Simmons.

This is the photocopy off which I was to work in reconstructing an image of Robert Simmons.

Image courtesy of Bob Ann Breland. I played with it a little below.

So many early photos were portraits made at the time of a person’s marriage, I’ll assume this was the same for the Simmons. However, as they were married about 1844 it seems like an early date.

See this photo of George and Martha Knight and one of James “Jockey Jim” Knight for the same drawn in clothing.
