Re: Joel Simmons son of Williamson Simmons

Katherine -

Thanks for the information. The marriage of Williamson and Deliliah in IN, and Delilah's birth in KY, are both consistent with connections to the Stillwell family. Susan Jane Stillwell is daughter of Dixon and Susan Stillwell, and the wife of William Wood. In the 1880 Weston census, you can find the Woods in dwelling #82, the Simmons in #84 and the Stillwells in #88.

In 1840, Williamson Simmons is also listed in Platte Co. census very near John Stillwell, whom I believe was the father of Dixon. Along with the Simmons and Stillwells, families of Cox, Miller, Gabbert and Moore are all found in the same vicinity of Weston, MO from 1840 through the late 1800s.

If you have or come across any information on the Indiana County where Williamson and Delilah were married, or Delilah's county of birth in KY, that would be of interest to me. Various circumstantial evidence suggests that my Stillwells probably migrated from Shelby Co, KY to Montgomery Co., IN to Platte Co., MO. Possible family name of Susan, wife of Dixon Stillwell is Coons, and possible wife of John Stillwell is Eleanor Black.

Best regards,
