Very odd....
I have a relative named WILLIAM THOMAS SIMMONS who married an ELLENDER KIRKES. (A strange first name that I recognized so I thought I would look into it further).

ELLENDER KIRKES was born in 1832 and died Feb. 28, 1870 (you listed a birth date as Feb 28...another odd coincidence).

But wait, there's more! ELLENDER KIRKES and WILLIAM THOMAS SIMMONS had a daughter named ELLEN OCTIVIA H. SIMMONS who married FRANKLIN SANDERS LIGHT. I mean, really....what are the chances of someone named LIGHT, someone named ELLENDER, and a significant Feb 28th in this family too all in the same generation?

Might be worth looking at....so go here:
