    Histories
    The Simmons Family of Westfield Township, Medina  Co.,Ohio by Ruth Simmons Stebbins
    The Simmons Family of Westfield Township, Medina Co.,Ohio by Ruth Simmons Stebbins
    Part 1 outlines the relocation of several Simmons family members to Ohio and their lives there. It also includes some information on the founding of the Ohio Farmers Insurance Co., in which members of the Simmons family played roles. Part 2 was originally a separate document, but it is appended here because it provides more information on the extended Simmons family in addition to details on Erastus Simmons descendants and family life.

    Ruth Stebbins sent part 1 to her cousin, Lottie Tanner Martin and Patricia Vanhoose donated part 2 to the Medina County Public Library.

    Simmons, Abigail Briggs -- Tea Set
    Abigail's tea set was undoubtedly inexpensive and is almost certainly a toy set. The set includes a 1.25-cup (300 ml) teapot, sugar bowl, six 2-ounce (60 ml) cups with saucers, six 5-inch (13 cm) dessert plates and a small bowl.
