Notes

Note 1

Sept 2018 DNA tests via Ancestry.com show Rex Ennis, a grandson of Nora Jones 1889-1966 to be a strong match (1st -2nd cousin) with the group of descendants of Ben F Simmons. Apparently Nora made a death bed statement that the father of her son Dale who was born 1910 was a Simmons. DNA matches indicate that would be Felix Simmons, born 1885 and married Sallie 1911.
