One thought on “1683 Timothy Jerome”

  1. The sword may have been passed down to my Grandfather, Henry Lynn Jerome. He was the sonHenry Cassius Jerome, son of James Nelson Jerome who was the son of Willard Nelson Jerome son of William, son of Willaim, Son of Timothy and Abigail. I remember Grandpa had a sword that he would take out and show us. It was a dress sword that belonged to a family member whom I cant remember who he said. I don”t know what happened to the sword but still keep my eyes out for it. Hopefully one day it will show up again. Again I dont know if this is the family sword but it looked old enough to be.
