Barbara Simon (1820 - 1888) #general

Shalom, David.

I can't assist you very much, I'm afraid.

"Juedische Grabstaetten im Kreis Bad Kreuznach" (Kreisverwaltung Bad
Kreuznach, 1995) does not list an extant Juedische Friedhof (Jewish
cemetery) at D-55452 Waldhilbersheim. The closest Jewish cemetery is
at D-55452 Guldental, about 1 km. SE of Waldhilbersheim (in fact,
Waldhilbersheim is now considered to be part of Guldental). There are
no existing gravestones for SIMONs in the small Jewish cemetery at
Guldental, but then only 20 gravestones remain there. Gravestones for
relatives of Barbara might no longer exist there or they might be
found in a neighbouring Jewish cemetery.

The BMD records (Personenstandesregistern) for this entire area have
been fully microfilmed by the Latter-Day Saints. My best suggestion
for unearthing Barbara's parents and siblings is to have a read of
those microfilms.

I am trying to document the family (parents & siblings) of Barbara
Simon (Birth: 1820 in Waldhilbersheim, Landkreis Bad Kreuznach,
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany - Death: 13 Feb 1888 (aged 67 - 68) in
Kosciusko, Attala County, Mississippi, USA - Burial: Beth Israel
Cemetery, Jackson, Hinds County, Mississippi, USA per Find A Grave
Memorial ID 11022597

In the 1880 census, Kosciusko, Attala County, MS, she was age 60, born
abt 1820 in Germany, white, female, single and recorded with the R. G.
McCoy family in a hotel operated by Mary McKinney.

R. G. was age 30, his wife Bettie, age 25, their daughter Nannie, age
4. Also with them was Henry Clark (age 30, born abt 1850 in MS, black,
male, single, servant) and Mariah Veasley, (age 50, born abt 1830 in
MS, black, female, widowed, servant).

I am neither Jewish nor a family member, but I am slowly documenting
the names and relationships of individuals and families who lived in
Attala County in 1830 ~ 1930. See

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Dave Thompson
