I'm looking for additional information on my family. They
came to the Hancock County area prior to it's inception. After the Battle of Kettle Creek they were granted land near Devereaux (mouth of the Shouderbone creek). My grandfather
was born in Sparta, then moved to Savannah where he ran an
elecrical supply business after extensive travel. His name was Gardiner Thomas Simmons Sr. He died of T.B. in 1935.

My great-grandfather owned a store in Sparta,installed
the first telephone service, and was a the Hancock
County Judge in the 1870's to 1880's. He also served in
the 15th GA. Co.E, Sparta volunteers 1861-1865. His name
was J.Clarence Simmons.

I do not know anything about the Simmons family in Devereux, but I am interested in your name Sisson; since I am researching that family from Wilkes County, Ga.
