Looking for information on the wife/family of Lacy SIMMONS (born c1735, died 1798 in Halifax Co., NC). Lacy's will mentions son Tadock [should be Zadock], daughters Barsha YOUNG, Ann SIMMONS, Martha JOYNER, Mary SIMMONS and Sarah SIMMONS. Witnesses were Benjamin WILLIAMS and Elizabeth YOUNG.
Lacy's son Zadock SIMMONS was born c1756 and was married between 1785 & 1790 to Sarah CLAYBOURN COTTON, widow of Henry COTTON. Zadock (and presumably Sarah) appears in the 1790 federal census of Halifax Co., NC. Zadock and Sarah had a son, John F. SIMMONS, born between 1790 and 1794.
Anyone who'd like to exchange info, please be in touch.
