Some sources list Edward's place of birth as Craftsbury, Vermont. Others state he was born in Orford, New Hampshire. Some sources estimate he was born in 1834; others in 1835.

Son of Simon Simonds and June or Jane Wilcox. The family name may be transcribed as "Simons" in some records online.

On October 18, 1886, the Orleans County Monitor (Barton, Vermont) reported that Edward "..has received another lift from the government of about $125. Glad to have him get it." However, the paper printed a retraction on November 1st. Civil War pension records indicate Edward did receive a pension by February 17 1892, but the records list his rank as Sergeant. Pension records dated February 18, 1918 show Hannah living in Lancaster, New Hampshire, where she continued to receive his pension.

The Orleans County Monitor, on March 18, 1889, reported "E.S. Simonds has rented the Cottage Hotel at Greensboro, and we understand he intends to move there this week. He proposes to keep summer boarders."

The hotel may not have worked out as well as Edward hoped. In January, 1896, he moved to Johnson, Vermont to work a farm that he rented. Edward and Hannah Hinds married in Johnson on January 9, 1897. The couple later moved to New Hampshire.

In early January, 1902, Edward's health had declined. His daughter, Hattie Simonds Cheney, traveled to New Hampshire and brought her father to her home to care for him. A death announcement was published in the Orleans County Monitor on February 24, 1902.

Edward was a charter member of Henry Flint Post, No. 15 G.A.R. (Grand Army of the Republic). He served as Officer of the Guard and delegate for 1886 -1887 and Commander in 1887. He was a member of Lamoille Valley Veterans Association, and elected Vice President in October 1886.
