    Milo Erwin's "History of Williamson County, IL" 1876. Page 99 In 1841 Jeremiah Simmons got into a fight with J.C. Sparks in Marion. William Benson, constable interfered and stopped it. Simmons then commenced on Benson. the latter started home, Simmons ran after him with a knife; Andrew Benson came up at that time, ran up to Simmons and asked him to stop. Simmons looked over his shoulder and saw who it was and stabbed backwards striking him in the abdomen from which he died. Simmons made his escape. Benson offered $500 reward and the Govenor $200 for his arrest. In about six months he wrote to his wife and was detected, and brought back from Iowa by Benson. He was tried and acquitted. His counsel was Gen. Shields and Gen. McClernand.
   
    "the Bloody Vendetta of Southern IL" by Erwin and Jon Musgrave, page 24. The IL Republican of Shawneetown printed the following reward notice: $200.00 Reward. Will be given for the apprehension of Jeremiah Simmons who committed the atrocious murder on the person of Andrew J. Benson in the town of Marion, Williamson County, IL on Sat. evening the 4th inst. The said Simmons is about 30 years of age, stout, heavy made, big shoulders, weighs about 160-170 pounds, 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high; of a sandy complextion, coarse hari, thin lips, light sandy beard, round face and freckled with tolerable dark or brown skin, heavy eye brows, light hazel eyes, and a sulky sour countenance, grim looks and down cast, a man of but few words, seldom laughs or speaks, and when in company stands or sits by himself. Had when he left a white hat, napped with coon fur, dressed in homespun brown jeans, had a large rifle gun, sugar tree stock, a large butcher knife, made of a file. The above reward will be given to any person for the delievery of said Simmons or if confined to any jail in the US so that he can be brought to justice by me the father of the deceased. Williamson Benson, 17 Dec 1841.  His defense attorneys were future Mexican War General James Shields and future Civil War General John A. McClernand. In 1905 G.W. Chelsey McCoy provided another account of this incident which he said took place in the fall of 1841: Simpson got into a quarrel with Andrew Benson's father, and as the old man who didn't want to quarrel was going away Jerry ran after him with a knife in his hand, swearing he would kill him. He and Andy were chums, and Andy ran up to Jerry and putting his hand on his shoulder said "O Jerry you wouldn't kill father would you?" At that Jerry struck backwards with his knife in his hand probably not thinking or intending to hurt Andy but only to shake him off and the blade entered the bowels of Andy and killed him. Willis Allen, the father of Josh Allen, was one of the prosecutores and James Shields defended him. Jerry was a man about 40. He broke jail and ran away but was caught a year later and tried but acquitted by a packed jury. "1905 Historical Souvenir of Williamson County, IL" by J.F. Wilcox.
   
    I found this in the Williamson County, IL Criminal files: 1844 CR-004 People vs. James Holloway. 1844 Jane Norman witness said Wm. Benson told her he did in the affray mentioned in the suit strike the said Jeremiah Simmons with a stick.
    This is all that is in the file, but it would appear Benson did strike Simmons, thus the reason Simmons went after him.

At the time of Jeremiah's decease he left his widow and seven children, one of which is a cripple and will probably will be the rest of his life and the oldest son has married and left his mother, the other six are living with their mother... his opinion the widow was not allotted enough property to support the family and ask for more...the papers and records were kept in such a loose manner during that portion of the administration that but little information can be collected from them and deponent knowing all about the circumstances of said deceased and his family is truly of the belief that there all the property belonging to said estate after paying the cost and charges of administration are just debts against the said estate should be set apart by the court to the said Catherine Simmons widow of aforesaid as her seperate property in order to be able to raise her family and pray the court order adding to the said widow's dower and seperate property.

6.    Susan Caroline2 Simmons #936 (1.Father1), b. abt 1818 in TN.
    I have also seen her name as Elizabeth, Mary & Nancy Simmons.
   
    Her name per her children's records:
   
    George Washington (Hiram G.W.) 1848 - 1933, married 1) Sarah E. Cash 4 Aug 1872 (Charla's ancestors). Married 2) Nancy E. Rich 13 Jul 1883, both marriages in Williamson County, IL. On his marriage return George Lewis says he was born in Cheatham County, TN (In 1848 this was still Robertson County, TN, then in 1856 became Cheatham where the Lewises lived), his father is Hiram Lewis and mother is Caroline Simmons. His obit says born Richmond County (no such place), TN son of Herman and Susan Caroline Lewis. He has lived in Williamson County, IL for 70 years, at his death was about 85 years and 4 days.

    Mary Eunice Lewis 1857 - 1916 married Henry Sterling Hill 12 Mar 1882 in Williamson County, IL. On her marriage return she says born TN, father was Hyram Lewis and mother was Caroline Simmons.
   
    Rapsey Ann Lewis 1864 - 1921 married Bazil Groves Murphy on 30 Oct 1887 in Williamson County, IL. Marriage return says born Williamson County, IL, father Hiram Lewis and mother is Susan Simmons. Her obit says she was born and spent her childhood on a farm four miles south of Marion. No parents names are listed. At the age of 16 united with the Christian Church of Shiloh. Left survivors; husband Bazil; adopted daughter Mrs. Minnie Stewart; one brother G.W. Lewis; one brother James Lewis and two sisters Mrs. Susan Simmons, Mrs. Mary Hill preceded her in death. Her death certificate says born IL, father was Hiram Lewis b. TN, mother _____ Simmons b. TN.

    She married abt 1837 in TN, Hiram George Washington Lewis #935, b. abt 1816 in Robertson, TN (son of Washington Lewis #953 [1785 - 1845] and Rhapsomy Hunter #954 [1789 -     ]), d. 10 Mar 1866 in Williamson, IL, property 8 Jul 1863 ,Williamson, IL, property 20 Jun 1864 ,Williamson, IL, property 1 Jul 1865 ,Williamson, IL, census 3 Jul 1865 in Williamson, IL, census (family) 1840 in Robertson, TN, census (family) 1850 in Robertson, TN.
    Hiram: Hiram's son gives his father's name as Hiram George Washington Lewis and Mother as Caroline Simmons.
   
    1840 Robertson County, TN Federa Census:
    Hiram Lewis 1 m 20-30, 2 f under 5, 1 f 5-10, 1 f 30-40 (If this is my Hiram I can't account for the older children. Also look at the age of the oldest female, at least 10 years older than Hiram. Hiram's father, Washington Lewis had already married a second time to Mrs. Cynthia Small nee Binkley 14 Nov 1827 in Davidson County, TN and moved to Williamson County, Il by 1840.)
   
    1850 Robertson County, TN Federal Census:
    Hiram Lewis 34, Elizabeth 32 (can't account for why her name is Elizabeth, children's marriage returns and death records say Susan Caroline Simmons), Charlotte M. 12, Susan T. 10, Elizabeth C. 6, Hiram G. 1.
    George Moak 20 (all born in TN. The children seem to fit, but it always bothered me that maybe I had the wrong family because my George would have been called Hiram G. After I found the marriage return for Hiram's son James he listed his father as Hiram George Washington Lewis. I now believe this is my family.)
   
    Robertson County, TN Court Minute Book page 465, Jan 1839. Letters of Administration is granted to Ennis B. Carney on the estate of Thomas Hunter, deceased.

    Robertson County, TN Deed Book 6, page 467 31 Aug 1850 - 4 Jan 1851. H.W. Lewis to Walter Scott for $375.00. One cart, yoke steer, 1 bay filly, one grey filly, two cows calves, four yearlings, 12 head sheep, 30 hogs, 2 bedsteads, 2 feather beds furniture, one sow, two ox, two shaving knives, 3 hoes, one man saddle, one loom, one chest, one set of chairs, two tables, two kettles, all of which are now in my possession now in trust. I am indebted to Cheatham Watson and Co for $375.00 sealed 25 Dec 1850. Signed H.W. Lewis.
   
    The part of Robertson County, TN that the Lewises were in became part of Cheatham County, TN in 1856. I suspect that is where they were in 1860 as I cannot find them in Illinois yet. In the Nannie Gray Parks notes I found Washington Lewis, son of Hiram md. ______ (unnamed) Simmons in Tenn, to ILL in 1860, no birth or death dates listed.
   
    I believe Hiram's children were:
    Susan T. Lewis 1837 - 1916, married Ephraim Simmons, JR. 7 Jul 1858 in Cheatham County, TN.
   
    Charlotte M. Lewis married William L. Morris 1 Aug 1858 in Cheatham County, TN.

Harris, County Treasurer of said County, the sum of $17.37 each as the respective shares of said minor children of the proceeds of sale of real estate in above cause, making a total of $34.74, belonging to said minors, and said County Treasurer now holds the same.
    Petitioner furhter represents that said shared are too small to justify the expense of appointment of Guardian for them, and that said fund is all of the property said children own: further, that it is necessary for their proper support and education that said funds should be expended upon them, and can be more advantageously done now that to await their arrival at majority. Petitioner being their mother, therefore asks that this Court enter an order directing said County Treasurer to pay said sum direct to petitioner for  the purpose aforesaid, taking her receipt in their names therefor.

    In the 1920 Frankliln County, IL Federal Census there is:
    Clyde Lee 23
    Lois Lee, wife 22
    Lewis Lee, son 2/12
    Can't explain this child. My grandparents had a daughter, Vivian that had died from measles before this. My grandfather had told my husband when I was pregnant with Amanda to be careful with me. He and my grandmother were playing and he set her down too hard and she miscarried twin boys. None of the family had ever heard this before he told Wade in 1978.
   
    in 1930 Franklin County, IL Federal Census Clyde Lee is a mine examiner, which he was until he retired.
   
    In 1940 they are on the farm where they would both live until they died. My grandfather received money from the government for his brother's death in WW I and made the down payment with it. I have all the little slips of paper he would receive when he made payments to the seller, he had saved all of them.
   
    I remember a long picture always hanging in my grandparent's bedroom of all the men who helped organize the coal miner's union. My grandpa Lee was one of those men.

    Old King Coal in 1981 at West Frankfort, IL.From Southern IL Newspaper: "It was a good pay for a kid," Old King Coal Clyde W. Lee said of hte $1.19 a day he earned for eight hours work at the Taylor No. 2 mine at the age of 14 in 1910. Now 85, Lee was selected to reign over the sixth annual Old King Coal Festival at West Frankfort Thursday through Saturday. His coronation willl be at opening day ceremonies Thursday... Lee of Rt 7, Marion started out "on my own" at the mine at Fordville, now the village of Energy, as a trapper, who opens andcloses doors for traffic on main haulage routes to maintain the flow of air through the mine. "I was always looking for better job, more money," Lee said, so he moved ot the Hemlock Mine at Herrin, No 3 at Hafer, teh West Mine at West Frankfort, Orient No. 1, Peabody NO 18, Old Ben No 8 and Orient No. 2. At Hemlock, Lee hand-loaded coal with his brother Emerson Lee. At Hafer, which Lee said was also known as Punkin Ridge, he began driving mules. Were the mules as fractious and stubborn as the miner's tales say? "it was just a job" Lee said. He entered the coal mining mechanized age at Orient No. 1 where he became a triprider, a sort of switchman working with motor men getting coal cars to and from the loading machine, and later a motorman and machine operator. On 15 Jan 1923, Lee began working as a motorman at Orient NO. 2 and one year later he became an examiner, an inspector of safety conditions, a position he held until their last day on 21 Mar 1961. Lee worked on the day of 23 Dec 1951, "Christmas Eve, you might call it, and I was home when I received the word." An explosion had occurred at the mine, Lee said "I was there to help in the rescue work" in which the bodies of 119 mineres were recovered from the explosion and fire wracked tunnels of the mine. One more miner died later of injuries. Working from Friday night to Sunday night on Christmas Day, Lee said "I got gassed too. Three or four of us got too much gas and had to come out. I've got a breathing condition and that didn't help it any." Otherwise after all those years in the mines, Lee said his injuries are "nothing to speak of." Lee and his wife Hazel... How does it feel to be Old King Coal? With a chuckle, Lee said, "It was my wife's idea. She wanted to turn ii (a nomination filed at the Chamber of Commerce office) in and she did. It's okay."
    Correction from the Southern Illinoisan: A story in the Southern Illinoisan Sunday about this year's Old King Coal, Clyde Lee, omitted thename of Lee's three daughters: Cleo Midgett, Pat Ramsey and Sue Schroeder of Pittsburg. Mary Joyce Capps of Carbondale is a step-daughter.
   
    From a newspaper aticle of the St Louis Globe-Democrat, Section F, Sat-Sun 12-12, Dec 1976 covering the Violent Explosion and fire that trapped and killed 119 men 25 years ago. The mine was the Portal 4 of the Chicago, Wilmington and Franklin Coal Co.'s Orient NO. 2 mine on 21 Dec 1951..."It was a miracle that they found him (Cecil Sanders) alive," Clyde Lee remembers. "I just couldn't believe anyone could stay alive under those condition.: Lee, now 80, lives at Pittsburg suth of West Frankfort. He was a day inspector at Orient No. 2 in 1951 and worked at the mine 38 years. "It was like an atomic bomb hit. Some of those men never had a chance," he remembers. "There was nothing down there that resembled what it was before. Motors were turned over and twisted and (shuttle) cares were bent like sardine cans. Concrete brattices were gone - just sand and dust." Lee helped lead the rescue crews into the mine on Sunday, afterh the explosion Friday. But he was overcome by gas himself and had to leave the ravaged mine. "I knew almost all of those boys, and we always had hopes we'd find some of them alive. But after I saw the conditions down there, I didnt' see ow any of them could be alive," he remembers. Many persons would risk their lives that first night and in the days ahead to bring out men overcome by gas and to try and reach the trapped and dead...
   
    I remember my Grandpa Lee talking of testifing at the investigation of the explosion. He said he had kept telling the mine bosses that the mine was not safe, it had too much gas but they wouldn't do anything about it. He said when it came time to testify they wanted him to tell another story but he said he told the truth, they knew the mine was full of gas but didn't listen to his mine inspection reports.
   
    My Grandpa Lee gave me (Charla Schroeder Murphy) a ruby and seed pearl ring of pink gold because my birthday was in July like my Grandma Lee. He told me the story that he had bartered for the ring. He had a bicycle at the time and he wanted a buggy so he could court my grandmother who lived in Carterville, he lived at Fordville at the time. He swapped the bike for the buggy and the ring. When he and my grandmother got married he pawned the ring to get enough money to buy furniture to set up housekeeping and when he got enough money went and bought it back. Then, the ring went missing for several years... and on her death bed an aunt of his called him to her and returned the ring, she had "borrowed" it without his knowledge. The ring always was in a pretty cup on my grandpa's desk and I would take it out and look at it and put it back, I was told it would be mine someday. After the death of my grandmother my grandpa married a wonderful lady, Hazel, she and her husband had been friends with my grandparents in the early years of their marriage in West Frankfort. Grandpa gave the ring to Hazel and my great Aunt Cille told her that the ring had always been promised to me and Hazel being the lady that she was promptly gave it back to Grandpa and he then told me the story of the ring and gave me possession of it. If the ring could talk!

    When we moved from our beloved Williamson County, IL in 2007 my parents moved to the "farm." We had bought my Grandpa and Grandma Lee's homeplace in 1992 after my grandfather passed away. We had made our home there for 14 years. Not wanting to sell the house, Mom and Dad agreed to move there in 2007.
    Mom died very suddenly at her childhood home, the farm where she and Dad had lived the last seven years. COPD was the contributing factor, probably a heart attack. Per her wishes she was cremated.
    Mom died on a Tuesday, my dad called me at 9:15 that morning to tell me he had bad news, Mom had passed away. We had been home that weekend and had a great visit, going to the new Kentucky Fried Chicken where Mom had her meal and then I fixed her a bowl of ice cream and plate of peach cobbler, and she ate it all. Then we went to Shoe Carnival in Carbondale and she bought a new pair of shoes.
    So life goes, you never know when you are making your last memories with someone. Last thing before we left was a hug and a "I love you" and then we were gone, and then two days later she was gone into the arms of her Savior. I will always be grateful for her easy passing.
