I'm looking for descendants of the Magnus Simonson who died in Union Co., S.C. 1795. It has been pretty well established that his children were: Mary Hollingsworth; Lydia Simonson; Eleanor (Wm) Teague; Hannah (Steven) Bishop; Phebe (James) Bishop; Nancy (Thomas) Sandage; Isaac, Magness; Mary Ann and Grace Simonson.
Seems that Mary's husband probably was her neighbor Joseph Hollingsworth and they went to Indiana about 1805 with his parents, brothers and cousins. The Bishops went to GA; The Sandages went to Indiana and we aren't sure about Isaac, Magnes, Lydia and Mary Ann and Grace. Which brings me just about to William Ashby...
In the terms of Magnus Simonson, Sr. will,1795, his four youngest children Magnus, Nancy, Mary Ann and Grace received land. In the Union County, S. C. Deed Abstracts, Vol 1, E-49-51; "State of South Carolina, 25 May 1797, William Ashby, Magnus Simonson, Mary Simonson, and Nancy Simonson of Union County to Richard Cox of same, for 40 sterling, tract on lower fishdam creek, granted to Magnus Simonson Sen'r by North Carolina 15 Feb 1764..." So where did William Ashby come from? I thought at first he might perhaps be Grace's husband; however she was granted land on the "north" side of the creek and the other three younger children (Magnus, Mary Ann and Nancy) got land on the "south" side of the creek....
Any light to be shed on this?
