Biography:

There is debate whether this is John or Simon J, which could be the same person due to the middle initial being a "J."

Family records state that this was Simon J who was born in Pennsylvania. At the age of 16 Simon fought in the War of 1812. He married Elizabeth Lowery and they had eleven children. This information is consistent with his daughter, Lucinda's death record and obituary.

According to the hard-to-read 1860 US census however, it appear that Lucinda was living with a John and Mary Miller, which seem to be the correct age to be her parents. This source, along with the 1880 census states that Lucinda's parents were born in Virginia, not in Pennsylvania as is stated on her death certificate.
