Paul Christensen-erindringer: Jeg besøgte dette område (Gettysburg, South Dakota) i 1983 for at finde oplysninger om denne slægtning, men sporet stoppede. Der blev fundet et skøde for Simon og Maggies farm i Potter County. På et senere tidspunkt er Simons farm blevet købt af staten. En stor dæmning er bygget i området og farmens areal er nu dækket af vand ("miles of water").

Teresa - III.B.3.c.4). - writes: …went through my records on what I had on SIMON and only things I had were land records, that Paul - III.B.3.c. - had found years ago on farm owned by Simon and Maggie. This area is now under water (a Missouri dam). 1905 census records lists Simon and Maggie. Age 55 and 56. And death of three children tells us that there is no further family on that end – wish we could find answers to why all three children died, also death of Simon and Maggie.

Terry - III.B.3.c.13). - writes: …it just seems like all records on SIMON disappeared after 1910.
