Joseph Simonds was my 7th great grand uncle, brother to James Simonds (1658 - 1717), my 7th great grandfather.  They were the sons of William Simonds and Judith Phippen, immigrants from England.  Joseph Simonds married Mary Tidd on 7 March 1681 in Woburn, Massachusetts.  She was the daughter of John Tidd and Rebecca Wood.  The Simonds and the Tidds were both from Woburn, but this couple removed to Cambridge Farms (a contiguous town), which became known later as the town of Lexington, Massachusetts.
