WILSON
Looking for descendants of, or anyone with knowledge about Benjamin Crawford WILSON who was residing in Hartselle, AL in 1922. Was born in NW Georgia circa 1856 (probably Gordon county). May have gone by either given name of Crawford (was listed that way on census records as a child) or "Ben". His father's name was Miles. He had sisters in Chattanooga, TN named Elizabeth Louisa and Rhoda Ellen. He is mentioned in Elizabeth's obituary in 1922 as residing in Hartselle. Also had older sister named Martha, two brothers named William (may have died in War Between States) and Obediah. Don't know what happened to Martha, but brother Obediah WILSON (b.1854 - d.1916) may have married a Selena Cain and also resided near Morgan county AL. (*Is there a Union Hill Free Will Baptist church cemetery in that area?)Very hopeful that someone will recognize these names or perhaps has access to a 1920 census and can help identify names of Benjamin Crawford's wife and children. All help welcome.

SIMMONS
I believe my husband's great grandfather used to live in Morgan County. His name was John C.S Simmons and he was married to a Sarah______?. They had several children. One of their sons was William Jefferson Simmons who married Amanda Vest. Amanda was the daughter of Parthena Glasscock Vest and George Washington Vest. I know they had a daughter named Nancy Simmons who may have married a Mr. riddle and another daughter named Lucinda Simmons who married a Mr. riddle. John C and Sarah had other children besides William Jefferson, Nancy and Lucinda but these are the only ones I ever heard of. I don't know what happened to the Riddle husbands but I think Lucinda later married a man by the last name of Winder and Nancy married a man by the last name of King. Perhaps the Riddle men were killed in the Civil War and that is only a guess. William Jeffersonand Amanda had a son born in Morgan County before they left for Arkansas and then Texas. This son was named Elrey Elbridge Simmons. For a time John C. Simmons and at least parts of his family lived in or around La Vaca, Arksansas. Eventually Elrey Elbridge and his wife moved to Oklahoma which was then Indian Territory. The town they settled in was Stigler, OK. I am wondering if you have any information or can tell me how I could find more information about this family when they lived in Alabama. I think they left sometime during the beginning of the Civil War. Thanks for any information you could give me.
