David C. SIMMONS was born c1857 in Weakley Co. or Obion Co. TN (neighboring counties).His parents were John SIMMONS,b. 1814, TN (my g grandfather) and Mary CROCKETT, b. c1815, TN or AL and d. 1857.David C. SIMMONS married Nancy OLDHAM, b. c1862 ( alsospelled ODOM in other records) 14 Feb 1880 in Weakley Co., TN.According to census, their son, Almus B. SIMMONS, was b. May 1881 (death certificate says 1880).David and Nancy appeared in the 1880 Weakley Co. TN Census. I have no other records of David C. SIMMONS except earlier census with his parents.
13 Nov 1887, Nancy E. SIMMONS married W.J. JONES in Weakley Co., TN.The 1900 Weakley Co. TN Census, Dist. 19, shows:

In 1930, Elbert and Mildred were living with Robert COLE and wife, Mozella, and family in the Obion Co. TN Census.
The death certificate of Almus B. SIMMONS (d. 26 Dec 1937, Obion Co. TN (residence listed as Tiptonville which, I believe, is in Lake Co., TN.) does not give the names of his parents but simply says Record lost. I`d like to know more about this family and find a little more concrete evidence that David C. SIMMONS and Nancy OLDHAM (ODOM) were the parents of Almus B. SIMMONS. I`m also interested in knowing what happened to David C. SIMMONS.I`m assuming that he died some time between 1880 and 1887(when wife, Nancy, married William J. JONES.Thanks for any information.Brenda
