States: Alabama: Lawrence
My grandparents were Riley Jackson Simmmons and Emily Druscillar Waldrop. They had 13 Children, the youngest boy being my Father, Thomas Joe. Riley Jackson's Grnadmother was Jenny Brooks Johnston and his Mother was Amanda. I know Amanda dies at an early age, but my Father insists that Riley had several brothers and sisters, I believe Riley must have been the youngest. He lived with Jenny and Jacob Strauder Johnston until a falling out when he was 14. He left AL for Texas to live with his brother. At some point he moved back to AL, married and raised a family. My Dad remembers Jenny living with them before her death. I have found information on Jenny's side of the family but have had trouble with the Simmons'. I should be getting a copy of the marriage agreement between Amanda and JM Simmons son. I would love to know what his name was. Also, one of my Dad's sister, Pearl, married a Posey, but that had to be way after the event you spoke of. Although it could be the same family, different generation. If I find anymore out from the information I recieve from a cousin in CA, I'll let you know.
