Linda, As I have just started this, I am new to this site. I do hope I can help you with what you are looking for. My Great grandfather was Jay A Simonds. I have recently found and in the process of scanning all his wifes journals and all his papers. If this turns out to be who you are looking for please contact me and I will be happy to send a photo to you for your records. My information is email@example.com RE: SIMONDS Most of the Simonds in my lines have come from around the Toledo area so far.
