Simon just seemed stuck out there alone in MD. It has never been determined about his lineage further back them himself, even though some tried but there was no firm provenance.
I am not surprised that there could be a lineage link; however, the DNA testing had not previously been done to prove it. This puts us well on the way to the possibility of a family tie.
Thank you for testing and I am hopeful that others of the Simon lineage will do so as well. Regrettably, any male Reeder in our family line is not possible as, regrettably, they are all now deceased.
