|Don Simons||Lavinia McMillan dau of Arch|
Hello Cousin Charles, I'm contacting you regarding the McMillans. My Gggrandmother is Lavinia McMillan dau of Archibald and neice of Annanias. She married Anson Simons in Westminster Ont.,1827 (by Springer). Archibald McMillan married Mercy Hagerman dau of Peter Hagerman of Dutch descent. They settled in Byron Twp Ontario Canada. circa 1797. Anson and bro in law Hugh McMillan bought land at what is now Lexington MI in 1840. I'm 74 in good health and
have been doing Simons and related research since 1990. Early on I visited the grave of Annanias and Mary in the 1990's for photos, etc. I live in Grand Blanc MI and have been often to Ont.,Canada doing research. The McMillans were among the earliest of the London area...much accomplished people. Anson Simons, son of Ebenezer was a grandson ,of Rev War Capt John Simons of Enfield CT. the founder of Andover & Weston Vt. I've made many trips there...no gravestone is yet known for the Capt. The Simons are Puritans first in Salem MA. My gt aunt Mercy Helen Simons dau of Lavinia wrote some on the death of Annanias and I've read any/all of the other sources which I could find to date. I've also read the recent article on Annanias in the "Ancestors". Which I believe based on your Missouri residence you may have provided the bulk of. We have been members of the New England Genealogical Society for decades.
I've not found anything to show the connection to Ireland. Alpha Simons ships Capt. at Chicago named his ship the "Orkney Lass"...suggesting that he considered his ancestry to be from Scotland.
A cherished possession is a small hand made woolen purse which was passed down through the Simons from which contains a note that it was brought from Scotland by the Simons Scottish ancestors (Lavinia). Finally, my Simons moved to Bay City in 1883 and my grandparents are buried near the McMillans stones. My Gt Uncle Leonard"McMillan"Simons dd,1896, is also buried there. We should get in touch.

If this keeps up will float a boat in our yard and we are not even in a flood area. So where is Noah's Ark when you need it? I had contact with the person that claimed and she is hoping to take the photos today. No promises as we had a heck of a thunderstorm last night. Also she has to get off work in time. But at least she works close to where Springfield National is at.

Sorry it ran out, my photo volunteer friend claimed it. I had to take my grandson to KC for some testing at Children's Mercy Hospital and did not get it done in time. Then rain and more rain here in Springfield so every time I had the chance it was raining and thunderstorms. My photo vol. will get it done. I will send an e mail and let them know you waited a long time.

You are so welcome. Am here on vacation and picking up those of my family who I have created or of my family created by those kind enough to transfer my family to me. Thought I'd print out the "want list" and lo and behold there was your request sitting next to one of mine! I did send a suggestion to the one maintaining those two memorials the exact plot numbers; I also placed them on the photo citation in case that doesn't get done! ENJOY!

|Helen Radtke||RE: John McMillen|
Thanks for the tip. I have never done the chalk thing, but I have seen where it has been done. I didn't know that it was not good for the markers so I won't do that. I may give the foil trick a try next time I go out. Glad to be of some help in the search for answers to peoples lost families.

You are truly welcome. Yes, he is by himself. It is unusual to
not have dates on the stone

I would be glad to do that for you. I know right where to go and I'll try to get that to you this weekend. Do you know who he is buried with as I have that information too some where. I had done that research for some else a few months ago.
