I can trace our family tree back to Lavinia Ward Simonson, daughter of Silas P. Simonson (b. 1768), a veteran of the Revolution and Ann?They had 6 children, Abraham (b. 1804), Stephen (b. 1806) Richard (b. 1801) Lavinia (b. 1797) , Ann (b. 1799) and Silas (b. 1811).According to the book "Staten Island and Its People" Silas was of French descent and related to Aert Simonson son of William (La Blant) Simonson.Is there anyone who has any more info on this family or descendants?Lavinia married William Ward Stillwell( another old SI family).She would be my 3rd great grandmother.
