      Charles C. Simmons&lt;br&gt;Gender: Male&lt;br&gt;Birth: Circa 1750 - Virginia, United States&lt;br&gt;Marriage: Spouse: Eleanor Weeks - May 17 1785 - Henry, Virginia, United States&lt;br&gt;Death: 1837 - Montgomery Co Va.&lt;br&gt;Burial: 1837 - Simmons Farm Cemetery, Floyd, Virginia&lt;br&gt;Spouses: <a>Eleanor Weeks</a>, <a>Simmons (born Choate)</a>&lt;br&gt;Children: <a>Thomas Weeks Simmons</a>, <a>William Simmons</a>, <a>Rebecca Lester (born Simmons)</a>, <a>Cary Simmons</a>, <a>Eleanor "Nellie" Lester (born Simmons)</a>, <a>John Simmons</a>, <a>Edward (Ned) Simmons</a>, <a>Sarah Ferrell (born Simmons)</a>&lt;br&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;Additional information: LifeSketch:The Lester family of Floyd County and Montgomery County, Virginia, by Marguerite Tise, p. 209-210. Charles Simmons was an outstanding man in Floyd County. He was the owner of several thousand acres of land, and he was the head of a large family, yet all the vital data about him are missing. There is no record of the date of his birth, date of death, place of burial, names of his two wives, dates of his marriages, the names of his parents. No family record has survived and no official record can be found. He never held public office. Charles Simmons was born in Maryland, according to the statement of his daughter, Eleanor Simmons Lester (Hulen's wife), in the 1880 census. The late Elder Leroy Weddle, Minister of the Brethren Church in Floyd County (whose wife was Elmetta Simmons, granddaughter of Carey Simmons and great-granddaughter of Charles Simmons), stated in an unpublished manuscript that Charles Simmons came to Virginia from Maryland. In 1824 he was exempted from the payment of county levy and poor rate taxes in Montgomery County on account of old age and infirmity. It seems likely that Charles married in Maryland and that his young wife accompanied him to Virginia. Her-name is not definitely known. Will Lester, (son of Joshua Lester, great-grandson of Charles Simmons), stated in an unpublished manuscript written in 1919, that Charles Simmons' first wife was a Miss Shoat. He does not give the source of his information - probably furnished by an elder member of the family living at that time. Shoat is a Maryland name. The first deed of record found for Charles Symonds (Simmons) is dated May 26, 1774, for a survey of 110 acres of land on Little River, made by the Loyal Land Company (Botetourt County records). This tract of land was in the present White Oak Grove Section and was his first home. He later deeded it to Edward Simmons (son of his first marriage) and Charles Simmons (grandson, son of John of his first marriage), (Floyd County records: DB A, p. 190; DB B, p. 25; DB E, p. 377; DB R, p. 292; WF F, p. 486; DB L, p. 292. See also WPA Historical Inventory for Floyd County, 1938, #35, Jimmie Roop Homeplace). In 1782, Charles Simmons was listed as a member of Capt. Eason's Company in Botetourt County "for the purpose of carrying into execution this state's quota of Troops to serve the United States Army for the Term of three years, or during the War." His service record, if any, is not known. Charles Simmons became a large landowner. In partnership with Thomas Hill, he acquired large tracts of land on the waters of Lost Bent, Easter & Little Camp Creeks and Skaggs Branch, making a total of approximately 2160 acres of land. Charles and Nellie Simmons moved to the Beaver Creek section, six miles north of the present town of Floyd, date unknown but perhaps in the 1790s. According to tradition, the tract of land on which they lived joined Hezekiah Sumner, and the house in which they lived stood a little distance behind the large white house on Rt. 8, built by George Simmons (this house burned up on March 5, 1996)• John Lester II bought this place from Charles Simmons and lived in the house which he had built. In 1820, Charles Simmons sold to John Lester II, 500 acres on the waters of Beaver Creek and the waters of West Fork, "being a part of the said Simmons inclusive survey and the former residence of the said Simmons," adjoining the land of Ezekiah (sic) Sumner (DB G, p. 516, Aug 5, 1820, Floyd County records).
