Notes for Mary Esther SIMONS

From the SC Historical Society, in the Simons folder,
letters of James Simons from the Revoltionary war time
period. It said "Mary Esther Simons, (Mrs. Holmes), the
woman Gen'l Francis Marion loved and who refused him." So
now we know why Francis Marion did not marry until old.
