Responding to Simmons’ letter


I am a proud American with more than 20 Revolutionary War patriots, two Mayflower ancestors and two Jamestowne ancestors in my lineage. My family has played an important role in the creation of this great nation through their blood, sweat, tears and deaths.

In response to the letter from Ms. Simmons in the Jan. 18, 2019, edition of the Coastal Point, there is one important point to consider, that point being it is fortunate that my ancestors did not take Ms. Simmons’ position on immigrants in need when the Simmons family came to America.
