Hugh Simmons commonly referred to himself as Dr. H. A. Simmons, I know he did marry G-Grandmother Lydia Rector in 1850. His brother referred to himself as Dr. F.A. Simmons, and was the President of Northwestern Medical College in St. Joseph in 1889. I have had difficulty finding their common parents names. I think they were born in NC but have no data to support that fact. I am checking old letters and diaries written from the field during the Civil War where Dr. H.A. Simmons served as a doctor for General McClellan in the field. I have found his pension record number. One of the relatives has an old obituary that appeared in the Fremont newspaper in 1891. I hope to get to read soon and maybe get additional clues. Thank you for your help!
If you find additional info please let me know.
