Margaret "Peggy" (Hoffman) Symmonds is the daughter of Peter and Anna (Lyon) Hoffman. Margaret, her parents, and her twin sister Mary "Polly" moved from Virginia to Butler County, Ohio, by packhorse over the mountains about 1788. She married John Henry Symmonds Jr. on March 11, 1806, in Butler County. Together they raised a family of 12 children, two dying in infancy. Most members of the Symmonds family moved further west in 1828, settling in west central Indiana, primarily in Marion and Parke counties. Several of John and Margaret's children moved to western Illinois, settling in Adams and Hancock counties in the 1840s and early 1850s. John and Margaret joined them there in 1852 and spent their final years in Hancock County. They were devout members of the Primitive Baptist Church and helped found the Bethel Church and Cemetery.
