I am seeking any information especially on John B. Simonson, b. about 1800, father to William F., b. 1828 in Brooklyn. John married Henrietta Palmer. It is probable that he came from the Hempstead area. Also possible is involvement in ownership of a livery stable as Wm. F. and Wm. H. were owners of a livery which then later became Simonson Funeral Home in Ozone Park and Richmond Hill. ANYone else researching this family please contact me.
