Second will be to determine if there was a common ancestor in Ulster, North Ireland between 1622 and 1800. Third will be to determine if there is common ancestry between Symington and Simonton in Scotland. and fourth will be to determine if there is a common ancestory with the Dixson, Dickson families of Scotland which would relate back to 1309 to Richard Dicson and his Ilk. In America there are Simonton families in Maine, New Jersey, Pennsalviana, North Carolina, and South Carolina between 1718 and 1800 that may be related with a common ancestor where there is no documentary proof.
