Surnames: Simmons
I am looking for information on three brothers of my grandmother. They are Everette E. Simmons born 11/15/1881?, Jefferson Newby Simmons born 4/1/1882? and James Roberts Simmons born 11/12/1884. All were born in Georgia but moved to Attala Co, MS in 1889. Everette was in the military and married Stella unknown, Newby may have married to Mabel Leffel and James may have gone to Calif.

I have hundreds of Simmons surnames in my family tree, going back to 1615. They started in the Virginia Colony. The records for 1675 on down are accompanied by source references. These Simmons folks migrated down through Georgia to Mississippi and Louisiana. There is way too much information to post here, but I can email you more if you write to me.

I am looking for the parents of Mary Hallie Simmons b.abt.1825 Copiah Co, Mississippi. She married first in 1840 John Manning, and second, in 1844 James Dickens. She and James Dickens moved to Louisiana. Probably settling in Vernon Parish.

Dear Nadine,

Although I have 20 Mary Simmons in my database, I don't think I have yours -- not by the name, date of birth, spouse, nor living in Vernon Parish, LA. I don't have a Manning nor a Dickens.

I have a James Jackson Simmons, b. 1825 in Pike Co., MS, so I checked his family. He had a sister named Mary Polly Simmons, b. 1819, but she m. a man named McClendon.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

I think we may have the same kin. I am related to Mary Ann Simmons daughter of James H Simmons and Edith Arminda Sparks. Here is a wonderful website that I got tons of leads from. http://www.sparksfamilytree.net/family_tree/wga76.html I know it says Sparks but there is sooo much more to it.
Good Luck Annette Boucher

Annette, thanks for the reply. I could not find any of my ancestors at the web site. My great grandfather James Madison Simmons and family arrived in Attala Co, MS in 1889 from Georgia. Thanks, Tom

I am descended from James Madison Simmons who was in Mississippi with his & other families before moving on to Monroe Co., Arkansas. Mine was born Jan. 09, 1858. He married Nancy "Nicie" Elizabeth Jones, b. April 18, 1858, in Hall Co., GA. Is this your James Madison Simmons family? Their son, Houston Davis Simmons was my maternal Grandfather.

I have that they settled in Rapides Parish. They are listed in the LAGENWEB under Pioneer Families. Listed as children of theirs is Margaret, William, Jane, Sarah, Nancy, Robert, and Marion. I think my great great grandfather is Robert. If you have any info. about this, I would greatly appreciate you sharing with me.
