Ms. Chandler,
My 2nd great grandfather was George Simmons who joined the LDS church and emigrated to Utah about the same time frame as your ancestor John Simmons. I know that he had a brother or a cousin who emigrated about the same time frame, I think that his name was John but I don't know for sure. I am on the road right now and don't have access to my geneology info but I can easily find out when I return next week. In fact my mother Sharen simmons or my sister Careen could probably help you more. While my family doesn't have much information on "the other family" (apparently there was a falling out several generations ago and the old timers still feel a bit funny about it).Assuming that this is your family, I do have a distant cousin from "the other side" who I met only a year ago who is very friendly and very involved in geneology, but again, I do have her info here with me. It sounds like this is probably a tie to your ancestors and assuming that it is, I was told by my distant cousin that significant progress has been made on this particular line. Please feel free to email my mother or sister, or myself at, or during working hours eastern time my mother can be reached at White Knight Pumps at (517)642-3237. good luck!!!
John Simmons
