These are my great great grandparents. James was born in AL. and Lodaska in MS. I am unsure where they married but I believe it was in MS. Their first child- Oliver Judson was born there in 1876, son Charles Oscar was born in AR. in 1880. By 1883 son John was born in Bastrop Co., TX. as were Minnie Loleet, William Fletcher, Dora Bertie and Pearl. Sometime in the 1890's James and Lodaska left Bastrop County and moved to Kaufman County, Texas. They are buried in the Ware Cemetery. I believe their son John may have moved back to Bastrop. I would love to meet any of his descendants. Also, I am curious as to what brought them the Simmons to Texas. Were there Simmons relatives living in Bastrop? If this family sounds familiar please let me know.
