Hannah Simmons is identified as the mother of Mary Franklin Cummings in the Tioga Co. Pa. Death records. [FHL#974.856 V2L p.30]

There is a Hannah Simmons b. 2 May 1752 to Nathan Simmons and Sarah Balkam in Windham, CT Vital Records but she appears to have married Hezekiah Linkon 2 Feb 1771

Jonathan Simons b.1759 New London, CT d.1847 Arkwright, NY. He was son of Joseph Simons and Mercy Bill and named a daughter Hannah ( possibly after his sister?). Couple other Hannah Simons in that line too.

David's brother Abel is mentioned in the same document as an Edward Simmons in Newport, RI,%201780-American%20Journal-ProvidenceRI.pdf
He is probably Edward b.1730, son of Joseph Simmons and Rebecca Wood. No Hannah in his extended family.
