I'm descended from Mary Pugh and Ephraim Seamonds[Simmons] through
their son Ephraim Seamonds, JR. and his wife Frances Johnson. Then
I'm directly descended from three of their daughters: Lucy Simmons,

I can write to the person who found the Pugh information, especially
Please let me know what you think, if we're tying up the Pugh group
