W.J. Simmons and his wife, Sarah Jane Wright, are buried in Mount Vernon Cemetery near Kennard. W.J. was born 4 Jan 1851, died 29 September 1918. I am trying to get a copy of his death certificate -- so far no luck from state of Texas or Cherokee County, where they were living in 1910. Waiting for reply from Houston County. W.J. could be 'William Jonathan Simmons', son of James A. Simmons and Maria Louisa Roach of Trinity County. Does anyone have records/ documents to confirm that W.J. and William Jonathan are the same person? Thanks.
