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.
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.
