I am looking for Simmons information for my husband’s gg-grandmother. Records show a marriage in Henry County, TN for Will Green Hicks to Elizabeth A. Swinney on 8 Oct 1857.
Civil War Application of Willis G. Hicks, Martin Weakley County, TN shows
he married Eliza Ann Simmons nee Sweeny on Oct 8, 1858, in Henry County, TN.
Another Civil War Application entry shows Willis G. Hicks married Mrs. Eliza A. Sweaney maiden name Simmons on the same day. Their only child was William Isaac Hicks, born 17 Jul 1861.
I believe Eliza’s parents were John Swinney (b 1805 in NC) and Elizabeth Simmons (b 1807 in NC). Does anyone have information on this family? You can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
