William Simmons
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 24, 1672
Plymouth County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Aug. 31, 1765
Little Compton
Newport County
Rhode Island, USA

Son of John and Mercy (Pabodie) Simmons.
Grandson of William and Elizabeth (Alden) Pabodie.
Great-grandson of John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden.
Great-great-grandson of William and Alice Mullins.

His will, made March 8, 1750, was recorded Sept. 28, 1765.

In her book "Elizabeth (Alden) Pabodie and Descendants," 1897, p.31, Mrs. Charles L. Alden writes that next to the grave of Abigail (Church) Simmons "is the base of a large stone, which probably marks the grave of her husband." Mrs. Alden also states that William Simmons was born Sept. 24, 1672. However, both "Massachusetts Town and Vital Records" and "Mayflower Births and Deaths" say that he was born Feb. 24, 1672. This memorial thus follows those sources.
