Surnames: Wittner, Simmons, Kelly, Hall, Thompson, Clark
My great-great grandfather, William Simmons, moved to South Bend, St. Joseph Co., in 1854 with several other men, Alfred Hall, Daniel Thompson, and William Kelly. They apparently came from New Jersey. William Simmons was a Quaker by birth but later became a Methodist. He married, in 1856, Sarah Kelly, daughter of William Kelly. They had one child, Katherine. Sarah died between 1860 and 1868. William Simmons then married my great-great grandmother, Mary Eliza Plaisted Clark, a widow. They had a daughter, Lizzie. William and Mary Eliza died in 1876 within 11 days of each other. Katherine (Kate) md. Oliver J. Wittner soon after. Lizzie moved to Boston and grew up with her maternal grandfather. I am looking for any Wittner descendents who might be interested in finding out more about their Simmons kin and lineage.
