Hello,
I have been researching my Simons' line in TN.and have learned that the name even on records is spelled differently; Simons,Simmons,Simonds,Symons,are the main variations. My family name is Simons, yet, I have seen it even in genealogy , the very same family, as Simonds and Simmons.
My Simons/Simonds are in TN mostly from early in 1800 Blount co, TN, then Van Buren,Warren Co., TN. My immediate TN. Simons /Simonds are from Walden's Ridge, or Signal Mtn., TN. They lived mostly, my family that is on Timesville Road, once named Smokey Mtn.,Road.TN.

My grandfather Arch Simons, b. abt 878 and his children were Coal Miners. I am looking for any information on these Signal Mtn.TN Miners. All comments welcome. I am also interested in the other families living on the mtn., from 1900 to date.
Family names of that mtn., connected to my Simons/Simonds are : Miles, Guess,Powell, Levi, Brown, Witt,Davis,Kilgore,Rutherford.......any and all ideas welcome, willing to share information! RoseMary
