Simon went to Henry County around 1840. Had son in 1842 there.
In 1840 census Henry Co., pg. 452 Simon T. Britt
In the tax records for 1843, Henry Co, TN. he paid poll tax only. He was in District 11
In the tax records of 1844 he was in District 12 paying poll tax only, Henry County.
He could have been in the same place & the districts changed.

The family was in the 1850 census Saline Township, D-423 23 of Nov.
I think he probably buried on his homeplace. I have not been able to find a tombstone. I have his probate. He left his son, John Henry Britt as administrator.
In the 1860 Mortality Schedule of Arkansas, it gives the cause of death for simon as Pleuresy, It also lists the little girl, Emily as dying from head disease. His other daughter, mary A. Britt Jeanes also died in April, possible from the same thing. Just a guess.
Dicey died in 1866.
I have all of his children and their children. None of them named their childen Simon, but several used the name of Thomas.
I hope this helps. I have more if you need it.
