Simon Diggs, of Lancaster County, Virginia, had a son named William, who married a Miss Goe, of Middlesex County, Virginia, by whom he had one son, named Christopher. His first wife died, and he was married the second time to Mary Seeton, by whom he had William, Isaac, Simon, John H., Dudley, Rowland, Barbee., Cole, Nancy, Polly, and Elizabeth. John H. married Sarah Hathaway, who lived to the age of 103 years. Their children were Lawson, Christopher Y., John H., Jr., Cynthia, Malinda, Nancy, Elizabeth, and William C. Lawson and John H., Jr., were ship carpenters. The former married Sarah Diggs, of Virginia, and settled in Missouri in 1834. John H., Jr., followed the sea for a number of years, but finally abandoned that dangerous calling and emigrated to the West. He came to St. Louis in 1834, and worked on the first steamboat built in that city. In 1339 he settled in Montgomery County, where he still lives. He married Jane Jeter, a daughter of Pleasant Jeter, of Richmond, Virginia, and sister of the eminent Rev. Dr. Jeter of that city.
