I have been working on my Simonton line for over 10 years and with the help of others have pretty well documented my line back to Thomas and Mary (Alden) which is where I hit a dead end. I have several theories but none can be proved. My guess was that I decended from a William Simonton (brother, father, ?) of Andrew who came over in 1718. While Andrew's line is well documented William's is not. I have found through the internet a few cousins who decended from one or more of Benjamin's children ( one ofThomas and Mary's son). The internet is great when looking for archived indecies, and other uploaded data. On the other had if you use other people's upload family tree data you can get into trouble as often times people assume too much and think a relaton is correct when in fact it is not. That is why Clayton's professional work is so important because he quotes 1st had factual information. If you go to www.roostweb.com and look up some Simonton name (try Benjamin) and look for the database file with the owner Jim265 you will find my database. It is a combination of my own work as well as merged files from cousins. If you have other direct information that I don't have please send on.
