Marvel Simmons' ancestors
Posted by: Tonya Benton Date: April 27, 2000 at 09:47:26

Marvel Simmons married Anna Mashburn on March 1, 1819 in Burke County. He died on May 13, 1861 in Yancey County.

My records show the following children: (thank you Cecil van Dyke and Simmons Family Heritage Book):

1) (Drury?) Leander married Polly Jimeson
2) Burt - killed in Civil War
3) Isaac
4) John Robert married Nancy Elliot of McDowell county
5) Nancy married Baxter Mashburn.

I am searching for information on Marvel's siblings and parents. One brother Israel, is very well known to me, but I have nothing on the other sibs (possible names, Elijah and John). Marvel's father possibly immigrated from England to MD and then set up a NC mill in Silver Creek area. Any bells ringing? Thank you.
