Notes for M
AURICE SIMONS I:
1- In the Revolution, four of the sons of Benjamin Simons II took up arms on the side of their country, and none were braver, firmer or more respectable among her defenders. One son, Maurice, was a Colonel of a militia regiment and was so liked, and so influential among them, that the Governor and Council thought it best to keep him in that command. He accordinglly served with them in all the harassing calls upon his regiment, and marched with them to the disastrous siege of Savannah, and in the border warfare near Georgia. After the Revolution, while carrying on the factorage business of East Bay, near Lodge Alley, he was grossly insulted by Major William Snipes. He challenged Snipes, they foungt, and Colonel Simons was killed by a ball entering his brain a little above the eye. He was universally lamented and left a widow and two sons, whose descendants still cherish the name and lineage.
