Introduction

Nancy Newland, my third cousin, is the researcher who gathered a good deal of the earlier information within this report. The following is the "surname summary" she wrote that details the whereabouts of these early ancestors of ours.

"William Simmons had a warrant for 1500 acres in 1785 on Lick Creek in old Fayette County, Kentucky in the part which later was Nelson Co. His friend Benjamin Roberts, Sr. had a warrant for land which was surveyed in 1783 on Howards Creek. Both of these men had received their warrants for military service in the Revolutionary War. William stated in his application for his pension for service during the Revolution in Henry County, KY, where he was living in 1832, that he was born in Maryland in 1752 and that he had been drafted into the militia in Prince William County, Virginia in June 1777. Under Captain Peyton he had marched to the Dumphries River in Fairfax County after which he had received an honorable discharge and had gone home. In 1779 he was called to march to Fredricksburg and later to Richmond where he remained until discharge. He stated that he had remained a resident of Prince William County until 34 years ago (from 1832 which would have been until 1797) when he had removed to Nelson County, KY for three years, then Henry County where he remained. His widow Nancy, age 90, requested to receive his pension in 1834, stating that they were married in 1770.

Sarah Simmons married Benjamin Roberts, Jr. in Nelson County with the permission of their parents. Their child Calvitt Roberts lived in Bond County, Illinois and was on the 1830 census there. Living adjacent to him was the family of Charles Simmons including Malinda who married Richardson Grigg. Was Charles Simmons a son of William Simmons and Sarah's brother? Was he her cousin? A Charles Simmons had also received a warrant for land in 1785 in Nelson County. And there was a Charles Simmons in 1780 in Prince William County, VA. More research needed here. Between 1805 and 1830 our Bond County Charles disappears in Tennessee. I believe that he was in Maury County and sold his land there in 1830 at the same time that Pleasant Jones, probable father of Catherine Jones, was selling his land prior to his removable to Bond County, Illinois.

Malinda, the daughter of Charles Simmons, was born in Tennessee. She came with her parents to Bond County. When she was 23 she married Richardson Grigg. They were married almost 24 years when she died in 1854."

Note: This report includes three generations. Later generations continue under the Diamond surname and can be seen in the Diamond report.

The following paragraph comes from the Grigg "surname summary" written by Nancy Newland.

"Richardson Grigg, son of Burwell and Sabra, was born in Rutherford County, North Carolina in 1808 and when he was 16 years old he came to Bond County, Illinois with two of his brothers. His parents and his other brothers followed three years later in 1828. He married Malinda Simmons in 1830. They had six children and then she died. He married Mrs. Catherine Jones Diamond, widow of Samuel T. Diamond of Bond County and they had two sons. Richardson was a "Hardshell" Baptist preacher. He preached the first sermon in Liberty Baptist Church, Zion Springs, Illinois and was a Charter Member of that church and also the Regoboth Association. All the Griggs led long lives. Richardson was killed by a train while crossing the J.S.& E. Railroad trestle over Kingsbury Creek, at 82 years of age, still hale and hearty."

Richardson came to Bond County with his two brothers in 1825, one of those brothers was Daniel. Richardson was a "hard-shell Baptist preacher with a flair for poetry." He and his wife are described in his daughter Sabra's obituary as "pioneer settlers in the vicinity of Woburn." It is important to note that when Richardson married his second wife Catherine Jones Diamond their union brought together her son from her first marriage, Samuel Stuart Diamond with his daughter from his first marriage, Sabra Irene Grigg who fell in love and married in 1867.

Another account says she drowned while trying to rescue Henry after he fell into a well on the Lloyd Smith - Loren Hueter farm a mile north of Woburn.
