This sounds like my line as well. Robert Simonton married Margaret Richards and had several children including Marie Simonton who married Thomas Parke(Part) Bitner. They were in Lawrence County, Pa. The Bitners moved to Illinois and then to Minnesota with another prominent family the Kings. Robert Cowden Bitner the son of Thomas and Marie (Simtonton) bitner married Emma Lurana King. This family was big in the Methodist church. The Kings also ended up in Minnesota.
