Most of the SIMMON(D)S Family left Australia in 1856 and went to the US. I have some research from a relative, Scott TRIMBLE, whom I've never met via a third party. The names included in that list are, WILSHIRE, BALLENDEN, HOWLAND, NORTH, HERWIG. Any contact from related family would help me to fill in the blanks. Most of these people seem to have been around the San Pedro, San Francisco and San Bernardino CA.
