Other Almy Family News

Jennifer Chudy & Richard Simon (1233-3111-2222-1) Have Moved

Jennifer e-mailed me that they had sold their house in New York for a really great price. They wanted to get their son Caleb into a good school district before he started kinder-garden (about 1 years away).

Almy Farm in Westport, RI

Randy Weeks sent me the following information about the Almy Farm in Westport. He wrote "The Almy Farm in Westport has been sold. The new owner started to rebuild the original house that William (Bunny) and his wife, along with Harker; Audrey and Susan lived in, but it was so bad that it was going to cost a fortune to do it. Thus the new owner asked the towns of Westport and Dartmouth if they wanted to do the restoration, and if so, could do so, but that the house would have to be moved from the farm to another piece of land. Unfortunately the new residents of the towns don't care about the restoration of anything and I feel it is going to be torn down. The older people of the area, including myself wish we could stop the destruction, but we are outnumbered. When I was 9 years old, my older sister (@12 years) and I used to fox hunt with Bunny and many others. The Almy's were very close friends of ours, and the memories will never be forgotten.

"By the way, my grandmother was Almy Wing Slocum, b. July 7, 1870 and married my grandfather Herbert Lockwood Weeks. They both graduated from the first high school in Dartmouth at the same time ... I have a copy of the graduation folder. They had one child, my dad, Dr. Joshua Herbert Weeks who died in 1956 at the age of 58. He played in the first official Rose Bowl game for Brown University ... one of his many feats."
