Simmons-6006 and Simmons-3606 appear to represent the same person because: This is a continuation of the clean-up of duplicate profiles for this family. Some of the dates are off by just a couple of years - this can be noted in the biogrpahy section if it is thought to be an issue. Further research and sources for Jane will provide the correct dates. Thanks Mags

Jane is 21 degrees from Amy Gilpin, 16 degrees from Joshua Slocum and 14 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
