John SR. b: abt 1822 Minera, Denbighsire, Wales and d: 1892 Denbighsire. Married Ellenor/Ellen unknow maiden name. They had six children - Jonthan, John jr., David, Mary Ann, Jesse and Thomas Henry. The men/boys all worked in - around and for the mines. Their son Jesse immigrated (age 22) to American and lived in Macon, MO. It appears the rest stayed in Wales. If anyone has any information on this family I sure would appreciate it. If there are any living relatives in Wales looking into the American connection that would be wonderful. I will add the surnames I have of the individuals Simons married in Wales.
