William J. Simmons from VA to NC to AL

William J. Simmons from VA to NC to AL

I am looking for the ancestors of William J. Simmons. He was born in VA around 1774.
At least two of his children were born in NC. He moved to Alabama before 1830. He
first appears in AL on the 1830 Pike County census living next to
Henry D. W. Jones. The south Alabama counties changed names for a few decades.
A family could have originally settled in Pike Co., and that land was then in Dale Co.,
and finally in Coffee Co. William Simmons appears to follow that pattern. He was in Pike Co.
in 1830, then in Dale Co. in 1840 and in Coffee Co in 1850. His son William J. Simmons Jr
follows the same residence pattern.


The following are the descendants (first 5 generations) of William J. Simmons, Sr:

Hi Larry. My name is Beverly Young. I am researching my ggrandfather John Henry Simmons b abt 1880's, married to Mattie Dozier. I don't know much about his family, but it is believed that he had a twin (possibly named James). I have been in contact with a Cheryl Dozier who indicated that a James Henry Simmons was married to her great aunt Lavinia Dozier and that they had a son named James Ernest Simmons, b 1906 d 1998. Does any of this sound familiar to you? And according to your message posted 11/4/00, there are 2 Simmons/Dozier marriages included in the descendants of William J. Simmons. Would you please contact me at beverlyyoung34@myfamily.com or beyoung@mail.med.upenn.edu. I would like to share further Simmons information with you. Awaiting your reply.
