Telling us how many greats fit your ancestor doesn't tell us when they might have been born. So, without that date I'm not sure I found your Simon, maybe you or your family will reconize some of these names.

1880 census Rusk Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

John BLANTON Self M Male MU 33 GA Farm Laborer GA GA
Lucinda BLANTON Wife M Female B 31 GA Keeps House GA GA
Simon BLANTON Son S Male B 14 TX Farm Laborer GA GA
John BLANTON Son S Male B 12 TX Farm Laborer GA GA
Mina BLANTON Dau S Female B 10 TX GA GA
Chapman BLANTON Son S Male B 8 TX GA GA
Edgar BLANTON Son S Male B 6 TX GA GA
Glenn BLANTON Son S Male B 4 TX GA GA
Pass BLANTON Son S Male B 2 TX GA GA

Do you know the maiden name of Victoria? Is Gadson/Gatson the married name for Irene?

Happy Hunting (^_^)
