Hi Cynthia,

Sorry, but the Simmons family has not yet crossed my path.

There is a small mention of the Simmons brothers in this book, it reads:

Page 36: "Benjamin Barnes, Benjamin Barnes, Jr., John Humaston, the Simmons brothers, (Aaron, Adams and abel,) and Stephen Barnett, came in soon after Major Royce. Mr. Barrett was one of the town officers chosen at the first town meeting, April 2, 1793."

Page 57: "Other prominent citizens in the vicinity of the village, but not in it, were Captain John Wicks, John Strong, Ephraim Walker, Timothy Hopkins, Deacon Bailey, Adam and Abel Simmons, Captain Ebenezer ...."

The only other brief mention of any Simmons' were of a Cabel, Edward E., John and a Tillinghast Simmons.

Happy Hunting!
