Simeon McIntier (McIntire, McIntyre) was born in Johnstown, Cape Breten, Nova Scotia. He married circa 1822 to Isabel (Isabella) Nicol daughter of William May Nicol II and Agness Brownlee from Scotland. His wife immigrated to St. Lawrence County, NY to the village of Hammond.
Following the birth of their eight children, they converted to Mormanism when a small group of LDS missionaries first came to Hammond, NY. Simeon and Isabel and their children made the trek to Utah along with William Austin, Agnes Nancy Nicol Austin, Lucinda, child of Olive Lee (raised by Agnes Nicol and William Austin).
On his way to Utah, Simeon was called up to fight in the Mexican-American War. He endured many hardships and even fought as far as California.
Meanwhile Isabel thought her husband was killed in the war, so in June 15, 1846, Isabel married William Austin, born 1800 and died 1887.
Simeon returned after the war, but never married again. His wife, Isabelle (Isabel) Nicol Austin, died of Rocky Mountain fever near Echo Canyon, Summit County, Utah on Sept. 27, 1852 and is buried somewhere near there.
