There is much information about this Simonton family on the internet in both English and Portuguese (the language spoken in Brazil)
I am sure any researching this illustrious family would be happy to see the names of parents, siblings and descendents.This family did so much good in Brazil, where I also served with my husband for almost 30 years.
