I am having a lot of trouble finding my Simmons ancestors. My Simmons came from TX as well. I don't know much about that side of my family. But here is what I do know. My great grandfathers name was Ed Shelton and he married Maggie Simmons. Maggie had a brother his name was Knox Simmons (it has been said that he was a champion rodeo rider who won some type of medal which was taken by the State after finding out that he was Indian). On this side of my family I have also heard rumors of being related to Qwana Parker (I don't know how true it is because I haven't been able to find out any information on this side of my family). I don't know if we are the Simmons from the same lineage but my Simmons were from Jacksonburg TX, Gainsburg TX, and Springer OK area. Email me if you like, maybe somewhere down the line we are related, who knows? DDlaquice@aol.com
. I look forward to hearing from you.
