Query by tertuga

Looking for ancestors of Benjamin Franklin Simmons born 1766 in North Carolina(possibly Tennessee). Specifically his parents.He died in about 1845 in Red River County,Texas.Some sources list his mother as Ruth Craige of North Carolina and John Isaac Simmons.What I wish to find is the source of this information,does it have some basis in fact?Ruth was definitely married to a Simmons as stated in her father's will.(William Craige,Jan.11,1785,Orange County,North Carolina).If anyone has any information I'd be greatful to hear it,also if I can assist anyone,please let me know.Tertuga

Hi! Thanks for responding to my request,looking for ancestors of Benjamin Franklin Simmons.I looked on as you suggested.There was nothing new that I hadn't known,in fact some of the information is conflicting.The Jane Suggs you mention was indeed married to an Isaac Simmons but at a much later date,July 22,1872,so this is not the same person.I do thank you however for your input.I have been a member of for about four years researching primarily the Simmons family decended from John Isaac Simmons and Ruth Craige.So if there is anything I am able to help you with,please let me know. Thanks again,Tertuga
