George W. Simmers, a wholesale feed, flour, and grain merchant in Harrisburg PA, was married at least 2 times! First wife, with whom he had 8 children, was a Lizzy A. (Unknown), born in PA of Irish parents!

His second wife, Elizabeth Henrietta Kolb, was a school teacher, knew his first wife, and had several of Lizzy A. and George's children as pupils in school! Elizabeth, also called "Lizzy", had 2 children with George Simmers, One a daughter, who died an infant, and the other a son, Charles Kolb Simmers who married Mabel Edwards of Harrisburg, and they had 3 children, Richard Simmers, Charles K. Simmers, Jr., and Margaret Lucille Simmers! Each of these children married and had 2 sons and a daughter! Richard Simmers is the father of Tom Simmers who created this record!

George W. Simmers served in the Civil War in Company E, 201st Pennsylvania Infantry from 8/19/1864 - 6/27/1865. He is found in 1900 living with his mother, and a son, Thomas W. Simmers, in her home in Harrisburg Pa where she is known by the name Mary Sheridan, having married James Sheridan sometime after the death of George Simmers' father! He is found later in the 1910 Census living with daughter, Mary E. Simmers Parfet and Richard Wallace Parfet, and their 2 yr. old daughter Mabel Parfet, in Bethesda MD! He is further found in 1820 in Washington D.C. boarding with the Offutt family. In 1927 he is again living with his daughter Mary Parfet, where he passes away, and is buried in Arlington Nat. Cemetery, I believe?
