I am also looking for the family of Simmons that arrived in Madison, NY about 1793/95. The family I am looking for is the parents of Brownell S. Simmons, b Aug 20 1798, Madison, NY, from family bible records. I believe him to be the brother of Cornelious b Oct 5 1783,b in RI and Benjamin Jr b b Aug 22 1795 in Madison, however I can find no comfirmation of this.
Brownell married a Lydia Tripp Nov 18 1817, (bible record) in town of Madison, state of NY. In the 1820 census records we find a Brownin Simmons living next to a Richard Tripp, The numbers of the children of Richard in the record match very closly with the bible record birth dates of the siblings of (I believe) Lydia.
Do you, or anyone, have anything on this family??? In the 1830 census Brownell is listed as Brownnin Simmons
