Hello everyone, a while back I was doing some research for my father's side of the family and I could not find anything further back then my GGGG Grandfather Leonard Simmons and his wife Mary ( maiden name Vandal). I have attached all of the information that I gathered at that time and would be interested in any additional information, corrections or most assuredly pictures of my ancestors.

Of note, Leonard had 8 children two of which served in the Civil War with the 36th Virginia (2nd Kanawha, Company E)their names were Leonard D. Simmons and Jeffrey Simmons. Leonard was wounded at the battle of Cloyd's Mountain and left for dead. I have confirmed this through the WV archives in Charleston and have copies of both of their Company Muster Roll chits, although there seems to be a plethora of people that misspelled Jeffrey during the time. I have seen Jeffrey spelled Jefry, Jeffney and Jefney on the pay chits, marriage documents and other documents.

My Grandmother's side of the family were Arnott's, also from Spencer, and I enjoyed our family reunions at a large two story civil war era homestead just outside of Spencer.

I would appreciate any help that may be provided and I hope my research may help some of you.

Jeffrey S. Simmons
