I received the obituary notice from the August 18 1900 edition of the " Sidney Record " for my gg-grandfather Nelson Simmons who died , August 13 1900 in Sidney , Del. Co. NY from the Sidney Historical Association .
" The death of Mr. Nelson Simmons last Monday morning caused a wave of sorrow in our community , where for the last thirty years he has been well known and highly respected . Mr. Simmons' health had been failing since last winter . He suffered little pain but got weaker every day , dying in the 75th year of his age . Mr. Simmons was a remarkably quit man , yet very pleasant and genial in his relations with all . He leaves a widow , three sons, Charles, Frank, and Chauncey Simmons and four step children, Mrs. Jane Coliar, Will, Dewitt, and Daniel Burdick, to mourn his loss .The funeral, held at the house at 2 p.m. Wdnesday and the internment in Prospect Hill cemetery, were attended by a large and mournful concourse of friends . The family have the sympathy of all in their deep sorrow . "
Chauncey was my g-grandfather, and the name of Nelsons' wife was Adaline (?)Colwell Burdick Simmons . Nelson married Adaline on June 25 1863 .
