Thanks so much, I am not privy to that information, i am a decendant of the Jesse line , who moved his family to Lawrence Mississippi. Jesse is my fifth Great Grandfather. Name is Gerald Simmons e-mail is nascar38_us @yahoo.com. It seems that every generation has a John Simmons James h Simmons of Texas named his son John t Simmons. Is there a will for Ruth or John Isaac jr Simmons. I wished I knew more about our northern ancestors! Thanks so much for your help, my dad I'd eighty now and is really enjoying this!!!
