     "Various authors have tried to make Thomas Symons a son or brother of Moses Simonson, but there is no evidence for this. Raymond Meyers Tingley went so far as to fabricate a deposition by Symons making him brother-in-law of Samuel Nash and father-in-law of Gilbert Brooks [Tingley-Meyers 371-72], but this alleged document is impeached by its own internal chronological impossibilities."1

     Thomas Symons and Elizabeth Symons (1st wife of Gilbert Brooks), both of Scituate, were likely brother and sister. See the Property note below.
