    Genealogy of Simeon Phelps.
    Genealogy of Simeon Phelps.
    Clipping from the St. Johnsville Enterprise, Jan. 9, 1947. (Brought to my attention by Cathy Kuhl and obtained from fultonhistory.com). I have used it as a source of the names of Simeon's children and Plynn's birthplace. However, it contains significant errors. Specifically, the names given for Aurilla's and Ardalissa's (Artalusia's) husbands are actually the names of their sons.
