Symmes Or Godfrey?
Another source gives her surname as Godfrey. Arrived aboard the 'Defence' with husband and four children, who were not specifically identified as children of William and Elizabeth. The passenger list gives ages as follows: William, 30; Elizabeth, 30; Francis, 10; Elizabeth, 6; Mary (or Marie), 2 1/2; and John, 5 months. Note that Francis was not a son of William and Elizabeth, but may have been a nephew of William or Elizabeth's child from the supposed previous marriage. 62c-4af1-890d-3220de0bc549&pg=0 tm
