This is what I know :
Calvin LITTLE married Almira (Elmira) SIMMONS on 10-11-1879 in the home of Thomas SIMMONS, in Whiteville, Columbus Co., N.C.. She was born : 02-12-1854, her parents were : Moses SIMMONS Sr. and Sally (Sarh) WILLIAMS. Almira was also married to D.F. SUGGS on 06-30-1872 in Columbus Co., N.C.
I have been told that this Calvin could be James Calvin SIMMONS, born : 04-22-1851, died : 03-03-1903, Cruso Island, Columbus Co., N.C., but unconfirmed.
Calvin and Almira had only one child I know of Lon Russell SIMMONS, born : 02-00-1878 and died : 01-11-1956, he married 07-29-1900 in Columbus Co, Mary C. (Jane) LONG, born : 11-07-1878, died 10-12-1913. Mary's parent's were Samuel LONG and Sarah A. MILLIKEN.
Lon and Mary had 6 children : Howard, born : 1901, unknown : born : between these two children, Cellan (McClellon), born : 1907, Iley (Issac)(Ollie) Pitman, born : 1908, Burley, born : 1912, Levy, born : abt. 10-12-1913
Now my question's are with these people are as follows : Why was Lon named SIMMONS. First his mother was married to D.F. SUGGS before his birth and after his birth to Calvin. Then who is D. F. SUGGS, and any other know info. ? Who is Calvin Little and any other info. about him ? Was there any other children by Calvin or D. F. and Almira ? Levy SIMMONS was adopted out to a neighbor familly shortly after his mother's death due to complication of his birth. Who is he now and where is his line ? Who was the unknown child of Lon and Mary ? Any information on these people wpould greatly be appreciated, I know that this SIMMONS line is conneted to the GORE also. I have checked married, birth and death records, that's where I got the above known information.
Everyone mentioned above is from Columbus Co., that I know of and also some where close by the Crueso Island area.
Appreciate any and all help.
