Hi Bobbie!  Welcome to WikiTree!

You have asked a good question.  One thing you could do is start a profile for one or both of the folks you are asking about, and include everything you know so far and every research avenue you have explored so far.  Then link the profile to your question.  That would help people like me who want to help but need a bit more of a starting point, and also need to know we aren't duplicating your effort.



Could Jane be this Jane Goslin? https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Goslin-46

Born 1785 in Georgia? Passed away 6 May 1851 in Simmonsville, Pike, Mississippi, USA

married Willis Simmons about 1804

Looks like there is a lot of the family on wikitree.
Willis Simmons and Jane Goslin are well documented in WikiTree.  PLEASE do NOT start new profile pages for them.  I am currently working to resolve misinformation handed down over many generations about the parentage of Jane Goslin. The ancestry for Willis Simmons has been updated and so far is correct.  Once a descendant has joined WikiTree then we feel comfortable in adding them to our trusted list.  A good place to begin reading about Willis and Jane is in the book "The Silver Creek Simmons" by Edna Simmons Campbell.  Please also take a look at my sister's blog page at

There are a lot of Simmons cousins/descendants here and profiles for both Willis and Jane.  A lot of us have DNA confirmations as well.
