My mother was a very quiet, shy, modest woman and for this reason I could not persuade her to tell me much about the ancestors on her side of the family. She also comes from a fairly well-off farming family which has always lived in Harscheid. As well as the usual farm work her father also bred and sold horses. My mother often told us how she used to play with the young horses as a child. She must have had a happy childhood.

My grandparents on my father's side had five children - three sons and two daughters:
 
1.

Christian Simon

, married, who lived in the village of Eichen where he managed a farm;
2.

Anna Katharina

, married to a man called

Adolphs

, who stayed on the farm Zum Hoff;
3.

Kaspar Heinrich Simon

, my father;
4.

Ferdinand Simon

, unmarried, who died young;
5.

Louise Simon

, married to the farmer Wilhelm

Schuhmacher

, who lived in Lützingen.
Her descendants still live there.

I found the following dates, concerning the Simon family, in the church register in Waldbröl:
 
1.

Johann Thomas Simons

, date of birth unknown
  

 (probably about 1690; ­it is likely that he was a son of
   Henrich and Gertrud Simonis, born 1660 resp. 1662, who
   are mentioned in the inscription of the

Tackeplatte

)

 
2.

Johannes Bertram Simons

, born Sept.15th 1720,
    married to

Anna Catharina Adolphs
 

3.

Johann Bertram Simon

, born 1748
   (from 1748, the final "s" is dropped)
 
4.

Johann Bertram Simon

, born 1783, my grandfather,
   married to

Anna Margarete Schuhmacher
 
 
 
 
 

5.

Kaspar Heinrich Simon

, my father, born May 13th 1818, married to

Elisabeth Dax

, born October 28th, 1814.
