Susannah DELP
Please Note:  Secondary sources are mixing up our subject with the Simms CARRICO who married Rebecca HANKS and Margaret ROTEN.  These are two different men.
Husband:  Simms / Sims / Syms CARRICO
Birth:  1817/8, VA
Death:  aft. 1880 census

Normally I would have pegged Simeon as the given name and "Simms" as a nickname, but the surname SIMMS appears in an early generations of the family, so that appears to be the source of the name, which then makes the 1840 census enumerator error (see below).  The elder Simms CARRICO (grandson of Abel CARRICO I & Elizabeth SIMMS) was also called "Simeon" only once, in the same 1840 census.

Secondary sources have our subject as a son of these parents,
Father:  Peter CARRICO
Mother:  Nancy WILKERSON
but there's no room for him in their census records.

Wife:  Susanna / Susannah / Susan DELPH / DELP
Birth:  1816/7, Grayson Co., VA
Death:  aft. 1880 census
Father:  John M. DELP
Mother:  Sophia SHULER / SCHULER

Many secondary sources give Susan this given name and initial:  "Susanna B."  It appears, to me, that this combination is a misreading of her 1860 census record (see below).  I'll grant that at first glance, that is what her name looks like, but on closer examination, it's "Susannah"; the "B" is really a slightly disconncted "h."  In other words, her middle initial is not "B."
