I'm also trying to find Simmons ancestors in the 1820-1850 era in Ohio.

I have recently discovered that our ancestor Lafayette W Simmons ( born Ohio 1832) appears to have been indentured as a 'poor boy' in 1839 in Shelby County, Indiana.  So his parents or father may have died in Ohio between 1832 and 1839.  Still no clue to their names or any siblings.

Some census records show his father as born in Baden, Germany, so there may have been a German spelling of the family name.

Good hunting!

Mr. Gill:  Thank you for addressing my inquiry regarding Catherine Minteer, the daughter to Catherine Simmons Minteer.  It is validation of the research I have for Catherine Minteer Barger.

In my research for Catherine Minteer Simmons, 1801-1846, I have hit a "brick wall" trying to locate her and the two children, John and Elizabeth, who all passed and believed buried in Cadiz or near area, Harrison County, Ohio.  In reaching out to Wiki, other genealogist's sources may lead to further research and the ability to add another piece of the puzzle to the family ancestry. Wiki does excellent standards in this capacity. Thank you for being a part of this organization.  I remain optimistic, but I realistically may have to admit my query, and this part of my family ancestry may not be resolved.
