Born on August 2nd, 1875 in Pennsylvania. He served in the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American War and later in with the British Army in World War I. He came out west after his military days and lived a transient life for a time. A woman named Grace Mazeris lived with him here as well.

A trunk of Simon’s belongings was found by famed backpacker Colin Fletcher in a cave along the Colorado River. He wrote about Simon and his adventures in tracing his journeys in the book "The Man from the Cave."
