I am seeking the names/dates of my great-grandfather's parents. He was Charles Simonton, b.1831 in NY, died Passaic Co. NJ, date unknown. He was a machinist. His wife was Louisa Gebhardt Simonton, b. about 1840 in NY, d. in NJ date unknown. Their children were Charles D., Susie, Josephine, John, James, Walter, Mary L., and Theodore. (1880 census, Paterson NJ, Passaic Co.)
The son John Vandervoort Simonton was my grandfather, b. 1867, in NY, d. 1939 (?). John's daughter Irma Simonton, was my mother, b.1906, Paterson NJ, d. 6/1972 in NYC. Irma's sister was Lou Violet Simonton, b. 1894 Paterson NJ, d. 1983 Paterson NJ, m. Wm. C. Templeton, no children. I have heard my mother and aunt mention a Robert Simonton. I know none of my Simonton relatives at the present time.
