John Knox Simmons was my g-g-grandfather, he was born on Feb. 11, 1839 in Gadsten, Ala. He married my g-g-grandmother Sara Andress, Jan. 18,1861 in Calhoun Co., Ala. They were moving to Tx. and I heard that she died on the way. He married the second time to Virginia, maiden name unknown. She died young, and he married her sister Martha, it was reported he sired 21 children, several are reported to have died at childbirth or at early ages. He died July 20,1911 and is buried at Willow Springs Cemetery in Athens, Tx. One of his son's was James Knox Simmons, who was my g-grandfather, and one of his son's was John Henry Simmons who was my grandfather. If anyone if from this line of Simmons I would like to hear from you, my email is Thanks, Ruth
