Simmons family to the Mississippi Territory

Hot off the presses – I have spent the past few months researching Willis Simmons’s time in Georgia and his eventual move to the Mississippi Territory.  Along the way, I discovered my depth of knowledge about this topic was pretty shallow –  hence the need for several months!  Special thanks to cousin Allan Thomas for sharing some of his research with me!  Allan, it would have taken me a year without your help!  The setting of the story is the central Georgia frontier in the first decade of the 1800s.

My connection to Willis and Jane Simmons is interesting as both my paternal grandparents descended from Willis Simmons. That makes me “Double Silver Creek Simmons!”  Not an uncommon occurrence in rural areas over 100 years ago!

Please choose “Simmons family to Mississippi” from the blogroll on the right.  It will download as a pdf document.  When it opens, please choose the circle with the four corners so that you can view it slide by slide.  Use the page up/down keys to navigate through it.  ENJOY!

    My SIMMONS family ties are in Marion County , Enon community. Cousins have attempted to connect to to Your Simmons family with out any luck. They came to Marion from Perry County. My grandmother was Demaris Annette (Nettie) Simmons born August 1888. Her father was Colon Simmons, I believe.
