There is an application for a pension with his birth & death dates applied by himself (17767) is what it gives. From book Simmons Family pg 72 under Patriots & Veterans by The american Genealogical Research Institue Arlington Va.

Joel was born 19 June 1757 in Albermarle County Virginia, the son of
Ephraim and Mary Pew Simmons. He is believed to be the descendent of Francis
Simmons,(Symonds) who was a native of Wantage, Middlesex County, England
and who arrived in Northumberland County, Virginia about 1634. Joel grew
up in Albermarle County as did Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson would have been
about 14 years of age at the time Joel was born.

In 1776, Joel entered the Revolutiomary War as a private under Lt. James
Darland of the Virginia Militia. At the time, 19 years of age, he served
3 months. He re-enlisted in 1777 for 1 month under a William Davis. The
record indicates that he married Betsy McCorall in 1778. There is little
information about Betsy except that she was born in Scotland. Their first
child, Robert, was born the 25th of January, 1779. In 1779 and 1780 Joel
is shown as serving 6 months under Henry Burke, James Martin and Col.Hola

Vital records seems to confirm that Joel traveled to various parts of
Virginia. In 1777 he was given land in Richmond County along with his brothers
Ephraim, William and Jesse. This land was deeded to them by their parents
Ephraim and Mary and represented a portion of that Richmond County land
that Ephraim Sr. had inherited from his father Joseph. In 1783 Joel
was granted 36 acres of land in Princess Anne County on the Atlantic coast
of southeastern Virginia. The grant was signed by Patrick Henry, then Governor
of Virginia, and may have been given in recognition of his military service.

Property tax records show that Joel lived in Albermarle County in 1783
and he was listed as owning 5 cattle and 1 horse. In 1784 he is shown as
living in Orange County. However, Orange County may have been formerly
part of Albermarle County. At any rate, in 1784 he is shown as owning 7
slaves, 6 horses and 9 cattle. In 1785, his cattle had increased to 14.
In 1786, his slaves were reduced to 4, horses to 3 and cattle to 4.

Joel and Betsy's children Robert (1-25-1779), Ephraim (10-17-1782),
Sarah (12-27-1784) Joab (6-23-1787) and David (5-26-1790) were all born
in Albermarle (Orange) County, Viriginia. Albermarle County records for
this period are sketchy due to destruction during the war. Col."Butcher"
Tarleton of the British forces over ran Charlotteville in 1780 and burned
the courthouse.

There are indications that Joel and his family migrated to the top of
the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1793. The territory was then known as Surry
County, Soutn Carolina. A section of that county later became a part of
Stokes County and a part of North Carolina. His brother, Jesse, settled,
married and raised a family there. Joel and his family remained there about
5 years. Daughters Peggy (7-29-1794) and Elizabeth (3-22-1797) were born

----- It is interesting to note that a Lt.
Clevend Kinlock Simmons, one of those wo perished in the defense of the
Alamo and who is memorialized there, was a native of Charleston, SC, born
there in 1809 or 1810. No family connection has been established at this

Sometime in 1798, Joel seems to have moved his family north agian. Early
records of Monroe County, VA (now West Virginia) indicated that Joel Sr
and his son Ephraim were early first residents there. Joel Jr. (3-18-1800),
Thompson (11-19-1802) and Polly (9-25-1805) were born in Monroe County
and Ephraim was married there in 1802. Monroe County court records show
the purchase by Joel Sr. of 260 acres of Rich Creek land from a Ruben George
in 1818. By the time of the 1820 Federal Census, Joel Sr. is listed under
the index for Lawrence County, Ohio. It may may be assumed that the family
moved there about that time. Joel Sr.'s wife Betsy is buried there and
is believed to have died there in 1828.

Joel Sr. must have sold all of his land in Monroe County after his wife
death and in 1828 he moved on with his son Joel Jr. to Rush County, Richland
Township, Indiana. He is listed as a member of his sons household there
in the Federal Census of 1830. They did not stay long in Rush County for
Joel Jr. homesteaded land in Henry County, Indiana in 1831. A portion of
that homestead later became the town of Sulpher Springs, Indiana. The cemetary
in the northeast section of the village was donated by the Simmons family.
Joel Sr., Joel Jr., and Joel Jr's wife Nancy Mannon Simmons, are buried
there. Joel Jr. died on september 4,1834. Nancy died on Septmber 8,1835.

1833 living in Indiana

After Joel Jr's death, Joel Sr. continued to live with his son Thompson
and others of his children who had settled in Rush, Henry and Howard
Counties in Indiana. Thompson had recieved 1 acre of land from his brother
Joel and had built a cabin on it. He was appointed administrator of Joel
Jr's estate, purchased the original homestead and became the guardian of
Joel Jr's younger children.

During Joel Sr's last years he had recieved a pension in recognititonof
his Revolutionary War Service. The Certificate of Pension was issued
August 26, 1833 in the amount of $33.33 per annum. The total pension he
recieved the last 5 years of his life would have been on the order
of $166.65. Based on the economy of today, this sum hardly sweems worthy
of any consideration. However, in an article written by an unidentified
grandchild, it was noted as being ample for his simple needs. "A new garment
now and then, lead and powder for his beloved rifle, for Grandad like to
go squirrel hunting once in awhile., a little gift of money for the daughter
or daughter-in-law in whose home he was staying, an occasional "fib and
bit" to the children to be spent for 'lickerish' and enough to keep his
'baccy box' supplied." The writer obviously felt that Joels simple need
were asequately cared for.

In a study of the Simmons family ancestry, Joel Sr. has to be considered
as the dominant personality. We are indeed fortuante that so much information
is available to us about his history. He was not a great man in the mold
of his contemporary Thomas Jefferson, neither was he literate or wealthy.
However, he was present and participated int eh birth of this nation. He
periodically shouldered his gun in defense of Virginia during those long
years of the War of Independence. He was born in the foothills of the Blue
Ridge Mountains only 7 years after Dr. Walker discovered a low level pass
through those mountians to the west. The pass later became known as the
Cumberland Gap and it also became the principal gateway in the migration
of the west led by Daniel Boone. In 1775, Boone and a party of woodsmen
opened the Wilderness Trail from the Gap into Tennessee and Kentucky, terminating
at what is now Louisville, Kentucky, a distance of some 300 miles.

Joel was 18 at the time and he lived northeast of the Gap by several
hundred miles. We can imagine that he must have known Daniel Boone and
other legendary figures of his time. We can also assume that he too, felt
the pull westward. He later listed himself as a surveyor-farmer and his
tales to his grandchildren show a great interest in hunting and exploring
the wilderness. However, he did not take his family through the Gap in
migration. He first wne tfurther down the Blue Ridge Mountains in
1793 and settled in Surry County, South Carolina.

It is worth a puase here to speculate about his journey south, as well
as other journies taken by the family. Roads, as we know them today, did
not exsist in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We can assume that wheeled vehicles
were of little use and that movement over the trails previously established
and in some cases, still used by the Indians. Loads would have to be carried
primarily by packhorses. In the tax lists of 1786, Joel was shown to have
4 slaves, 3 horses and 4 cattle. What he owned in 1793 and what he took
with him on his journey is not known at this time. He and Betsy would have
5 children ranging in age from 14 to 3 years. The straight line distance
from Orange County to Surry County, NC is approximately 200 miles. The
hardships of surviving on the trail can be easily imagined. The records
indicate that most of the Simmons children survived to adulthood.
They must have been a tough and hardy breed with an instinct for survival.

How a child faired while growing up in the wilderness would have depended
greatly on the prosperity and ingenuity of the parents. We can get an idea
of the extreme conditions by reading the autobiography of Rev.Jacob Broadhurst
(1772-1863). He lived as a boy on the Pennsylvania frontier and migrated
to Henry County, Indiana 10 years before Joel Jr. settled there. 
He wrote -- "Our common dress was tow linen or dressed deer skin, when
we had clothes, but boys, such as I and my twin brother till about 8 years
or 10 years of age, had to do with 1 long shirt a year, which came down
to the calf of the legs. When they were worn out, we had to go naked, or
nearly so, till the next crop of the flax was manufactured into linen,
which was done in the winter. In the winter of 1780 the snow fell nearly
2 feet deep but we had not our new shirts yet; therefore the twin boys
were nearly naked. I began  to contrive for myself and accordingly,
I found a small deer skin that had been killed out of season- to thin to
dress- so I put strings on it, turned the hair side next to my belly and
wore it as an apron. Then I was prepared to face the winter winds, my feet
and legs being still naked and my old shirt gone except for the collar
and a few threads hanging around." (Taken from the Henry County, Indiana
Bicentennial Publication of 1976).

After 5 years in Surry County, SC, Joel Sr. and his family, except Robert,
began the long trek back to Monroe County, Virginia (now West Virginia).
Robert seems to have remained in South Carolina and may have migrated later
to Louisiana. Joel Sr. bought land in Monroe County and 3 of his youngerest
Children were born there. He stayed put for about 20 years. Like so many
pioneers he apparently felt the urge to move on, this time to Lawrence
County, Ohio. Lawrence County borders the Ohio river above
what is now Huntington, West Virginia. Joel Sr's wife is believed
to have died in 1828. It is not clear wether she is buried in West Virginia
or Ohio but Lawrence County, Ohio seems to be the better guess. We know
that not long after her death, both Joel Jr. and Joel Sr. moved onto Rush
County, Indiana. A look at a regional map indicate that Rush County is
approximately 50 miles northwest of the southwest corner of Ohio, a total
of some 300 miles as a crow flies from lawrence County, Ohio. The most
natural form of travel for them would have been down the Ohio river by
flatboat, the overland to their new home.

We visited with Mr. and Mrs. Harold Harter, neighbors who had farmed
the sisters land and assisted them with many problems.They told
us that the sisters were very interested in family history and kept a great
many records. Their farm was on original property. Mr. Harter told us that
the original deed to their farm was inscribed on the back of an animal
skin. Unfortunatley, in their later years, their fam burnt down and most
of their records were destroyed.

We also visited with Jay Fadely, operator of the General Store in Sulpher
Springs and found that his ancestors were among the early residents of
that section. He advised us that the various properties he owns in Sulpher
Springs all show Joel Jr. as the original owner in the abstracts.

Follwoing our visit to the Sulpher Springs Cemetary, we developed a
real concern about the deterioration of the site. The cemetary is reasonably
well cared for but feed and grain storage area is crowding agianst the
south and east perimeter and the only access is through a commerical
loading and parking area. It was noted that Henry County is the burial
place of some 34 Revolutionary War Veterans. However, reference to Henry
County Historical Publications indicates that only 14 of them are marked
and that the exact location of some are uncertain. It is hoped that at
some point in the near future, the multiude of Joel's descendents can join
together in the preservation of his resting place.

iv. ALFRED (GOV)(BRIG. GEN.) HOLT COLQUITT, b. April 20, 1824; d. March 26, 1894.

Brigadier General Alfred Holt Colquitt (1824-1894)
Colquitt's Brigade

Finegan's most reliable force was Colquitt's Brigade, a collection of veteran units that had seen action in Virginia, Maryland and the Carolinas. Their commander was a thirty-nine year old, full-bearded Georgian, son of a prominent antebellum politician. An 1844 graduate of Princeton, Colquitt's pre-war law career was interrupted by service in the Mexican War as a staff major, followed by service in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Georgia Senate.

An ardent secessionist, Colquitt served as presidential elector for John C. Breckinridge, and, upon the outbreak of hostilities, was appointed captain of a company in the Sixth Georgia Infantry. Elected colonel of the regiment in May 1861 and subsequently placed in command of a brigade, Colquitt participated in the defense of Richmond in the spring of 1862. On September 1st of that year he obtained the rank of brigadier general and served as brigade commander under Jackson at Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville.

Prior to Chancellorsville Colquitt's performance had been capable, if not spectacular. In this last battle, however, his hesitation during Jackson's May 2 flank attack, in the mistaken belief that Union cavalry was massing in his front, slowed the Confederate onslaught and led to criticism of his abilities. Douglas Southall Freeman, noted historian of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, writes that Colquitt showed "doubtful achievement" at Chancellorsville and, "concerning him, the question fundamentally was one of judgment."

After this campaign, Colquitt and his "depleted" brigade were first transferred from Virginia to North Carolina, then eventually to Charleston. They participated in the defense of the city during the summer and fall of 1863. Arriving in Florida only days before the Federal advance, Colquitt's troops were the most experienced troops available to General Finegan. Undoubtedly Colquitt still keenly felt the disappointment and embarrassment of his poor showing at Chancellorsville, and was anxious to atone for his actions. While a skirmish in the Florida pines could hardly compare with Virginia's pitched battles, a victory here might end the Georgian's exile to the backwaters of the war, and help polish his somewhat tarnished image.

Colquitt came to Florida with his brigade of Georgia veterans, consisting of the Sixth, Nineteenth, Twenty-third, Twenty-seventh, and Twenty-eighth Infantry regiments. Added to these units were the Sixth Florida Infantry Battalion, the Chatham Artillery from Georgia and the Leon Light Artillery from Florida.. The arrival of Colquitt's Brigade was a welcome addition to the Confederate force, and in the coming battle, it was to prove its fighting ability.

Praised as the "Hero of Olustee" for his leadership during the battle, Colquitt continued his service during 1864-1865 with Lee's army in Virginia. Late in the war Colquitt and his brigade were transferred to North Carolina, where they surrendered in 1865. In the post-Reconstruction years Colquitt served as governor of Georgia and then as United States Senator.

Unfortunately for students of the Civil War, Confederate memoirs, reminiscences, and regimental histories were written in far fewer numbers than similar Union works. Thus the history of many Confederate regiments is not as complete as for northern units.

The history of the different regiments comprising Colquitt's Brigade has already been largely traced through their commander's exploits. All of the regiments were organized in Georgia during the first year of the war. The Sixth was mustered in service at Atlanta, the Nineteenth and Twenty-third at Camp McDonald at Big Shanty, and the Twenty-eighth at Camp Stephens, near Griffin. After initial training in Georgia, the regiments were transported to Virginia. Here they joined the Confederate army that would gain fame as the Army of Northern Virginia, and participated in all the major campaigns of that force through Chancellorsville.

In the late spring of 1863 the brigade, along with its commander, was transferred to the lower Atlantic coast. After a brief stay in North Carolina, they were sent to aid in the defense of besieged Charleston, where they remained for the rest of the year.

At the time of their organization, these units included some of the finest military material of the state. Their companies had glamorous names like the Palmetto Guards, Georgia Dillers, Gold Diggers, Jefferson Greys, Bartow Invincibles, Taylor Guards, Cherokee Field Guards, Confederate Invincibles, Sandersonville Volunteers, Ohoopee Guards, Baker County Fire Eaters, Irwin Volunteers, and the Bartow Yankee Killers. After three years of grim warfare most of the glamour had faded. Many of the regiments had been decimated by casualties and disease. For example, in a book published late in 1864, the commander of the Nineteenth reported that 1,258 men had served in the regiment, and it had suffered total losses, including casualties, discharged, deserted and transferred, of 1,237. (This included many men that had been wounded more than once.) Although greatly reduced in numbers, the surviving members of these regiments had evolved into superb, veteran fighters, made even more ruthless by the knowledge that a Union invasion of Florida might soon bring their home state under attack. During the fighting at Olustee the brigade suffered official casualties of 43 killed, 441 wounded and two missing.
