|The entrance to Simmons Road.|
The connection is through family - as many connections are in doing historical research.
According to the obituary I found, Mrs. Katherine L. Simmons of Glenmont was the wife of Harry Simmons, and the daughter of Martin Kramrath and Catherine Erlenwein Kramrath.
|The obit is from the Knickerbocker News, January 27, 1941|
To make a nice neat story, I am going to assume that Katherine and Harry Simmons are the ones the road is named after. So, Erlenwein is her mother's maiden name. Now I am filled with more curiosity. Which house was theirs? What are the other names on the pillars? Why did they put those names on the entrance pillars? Time for a road trip to Glenmont!
