My mother's maiden name is Hemmes.The Hemmes family resides in Rome, NY, but was originally from Grand Rapids,MI. I would be very interested in any information of the Hemmes family. My grandfather, recently deceased, was Paul(DOB: 3/23/1912) married to Marion (nee: Wheaton)(DOB: 12/23/1916). They had 7 children of which 5 survive(1 died at 12 yrs of age and one shortly after childbirth). My grandfather had done a great deal of research and was planning to write a book about the family. I believe my mother has his notes or I could probably get access to them if warranted.
