Birth: Oct. 12, 1838
Cumberland County

Death: Jan. 13, 1907

In 1860, George Simons was a laborer living in South Middleton Township, Cumberland County. He stood 5' 9" and had black hair and dark eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Carlisle and mustered into federal service at Harrisburg on October 19, 1862, as a private with Co. F, 17th Pennsylvania Cavalry (162nd Pa). On June 17, 1865, he transferred to Co. F, 2nd Pennsylvania Provisional Cavalry, during a war-end consolidation, but the company register says he was detached to the 2nd U.S. Artillery. Both events are possible, but the former is the more likely. He was honorably discharged with his company August 7, 1865.

He married Sarah Ann Rowe c. 1868 and fathered Elizabeth (b. @1868), William R. (b. 11/??/70), Mary C. (b. @1872), Samuel M. (b. @1873), Hugh Walter (b. @1876), Laura (b. @1869), and Peter (b. 07/11/81).
