Pennsylvania Descendants of Baltimore Co., Maryland Simpsons Perhaps

By Nona Williams



While researching my HARROD family in western Pennsylvania, I found several SIMPSON men who were neighbors of a SMITH family that had come from old Baltimore County (now Harford County) Maryland. There was also a PRIBBLE family in the area that might be related to the PREBLE family of old Baltimore County. The following references were found in a book by Howard L. Lecky called The Tenmile Country and Its Pioneer Families, published by Closson Press in 1997. The Tenmile Country is about the Tenmile Creek and the surrounding area. The term “Tenmile Country” refers to land in the southwestern portion of Pennsylvania, located along the Tenmile Creek, in the counties of Greene and Washington. A review of this book that appeared in The Virginia Genealogy Society Newsletter noted, “. . . many of the family names included have a familiar sound throughout the Shenandoah Valley to the south.” On page 4 of Tenmile Country and Its Pioneer Families is the following:



Some time before 1772, a man named HENDRICKS made an improvement on what is now Smith Creek, not far from the present town of Waynesburg, for the land which Ralph SMITH bought for his father, Thomas SMITH of Baltimore, on December 10, 1772, is described as being “a tract of land joining HENDRICKS. Since most of the land about Waynesburg was settled by families from the head of Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, it is most likely that descendants of the early Maryland trader, James HENDRICKS, with were in the Tenmile Country, and had picked out a choice location. . .



One page 5:



In the same record of sale of land next HENDRICKS’, the land is described as being on the south side of WILLIAMS’ Run, indicating a man named WILLIAMS had also taken land here. We are inclined to identify him as William WILLIAMS, who is reported in the Annals of Augusta County, Virginia, as having bought land on Tenmile on January 8, 1774, from John JONES, who had purchased it first from John SIMPSON, who made an improvement on what is now Bates Fork, before 1772. William WILLIAMS then sold it to Jacob REES on July 31, 1775. Records show that Hannah, the wife of Jacob REES, had accompanied him into the section, in 1773, as did Isaac HORNER. There is no record to show that William WILLIAMS was one of the traders, but it is probable that he belonged to the Baltimore family of that name, and may have been related to Colonel John MINOR, whose entry into the Tenmile is set at 1765, and whose first two wives were named WILLIAMS.



The 1780 muster roll of Capt. William HARROD on pages 25-26 included a Thomas SIMPSON. Capt. HARROD lived on Tenmile Creek in what was then Washington Co., Pennsylvania and presumably recruited men from that area. In 1782 Elisha and Reuben PERKINS and Thomas SMITH who had come from Harford Co., Maryland served in the Pennsylvania Militia under the command of Benjamin STITES (page 35). These men had been recruited in Morgan Township, Washington County. Morgan Township included roughly all the section north of Tenmile and south of the Dividing Ridge, extending from the Monongahela River, at the mouth of Tenmile to Bates Fork of Tenmile, west of Fort Jackson. In 1785 Reuben and Richard PERKINS appeared on the assessment roll in Morgan Township, Washington Co., Pennsylvania. Three Reuben PERKINS were listed, one Reuben PERKINS Jr. was listed as single rather than head of a household. No SIMPSONs appear on that list.



In Cumberland Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania William PURKINS and a PURKINS estate were on the assessment roll of 1788. Cumberland Township was roughly that portion of present Greene County located between Tenmile and Big Whiteley Creeks, extending from Monongahela River to Purseley Creek. No SIMPSON men appeared on this roll.



The assessment roll for Greene Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania for 1784 included William PARKINS. Greene Township included the territory between Big Whiteley Creek and the present West Virginia line.



An undated petition in favor was creating a new state to be called Westsylvania was circulated (pages 141-153). The petition was probably signed between 1770-1780 and the following names were on it: Gilbert and Samuel SIMPSON. Capt. William HARROD and other members of his family signed this petition.



A list of privates who served under the command of Capt. William HARROD appears on page 255. On that list were Thomas SIMPSON and Thomas PRIBBLE. Capt. HARROD’s brother-in-law, Capt. Evan SHELBY Jr. commanded a company in service from July 15, 1759 to November 1, 1759. These men were recruited from the Conochacheague and nearby counties of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. On the list were Samuel and John SIMPSON.



On page 379 is the following:



Jacob REES Sr., recorded a deed on July 31, 1775 for land he bought on Tenmile from William WILLIAMS, who had bought it on January 8, 1774, from John JONES, who had it from the original improver, John SIMPSON.



On pages 416-423 is a discussion of the SMITH family. Extracts appear below:



L.K. Evans says of the SMITH Family, “Thomas SMITH, the grandfather of my clever old bachelor friend, Hugh SMITH, lived in Harford County, Maryland, on the bank of the Susquehanna River. There he kept a tavern and a ferry and reared a family of thirteen children – eight boys and five girls. In the year 1772, he sent Ralph, his eldest son, then 21 years old, west of the mountains to buy land for a future home for himself and younger brothers. He crossed the mountains with a number of others on a like errand, some of whom stopped in Fayette County, but he pushed on west of the Monongehela, and following up Ten Mile to the present site of Jefferson, purchased a body of six hundred acres of land, some little improved, and situated on both sides of the creek above the Clarksville bridge. . . .



“In March, 1774, Ralph SMITH and his brother, Thomas, then but eighteen years old, set out with a party of eight or ten others from the same neighborhood, to seek their fortunes in the West, to improve lands and cultivate a summer’s crop – those that were married intending to bring on their families in the fall. . . . Thomas SMITH and Thomas KENT, then nineteen years old, repaired to the Smith Creek purchase and built them a cabin about where Josiah INGHRAM’s brick mansion now stands. . . .



The will of Thomas SMITH appears on pages 416-418. It begins, “In the Name of God Amen: I, Thomas SMITH, of Harford County, State of Maryland; Farmer . . . The will was dated 11 April 1791 and was proved 19 December 1791. His wife, Hannah, of Harford County, Maryland made her will 8 May 1807. Her son, Nathaniel SMITH was executor.



In his pension application dated 8 May 1833, Thomas SMITH stated that he was born in Baltimore Co., Maryland in 1757. He said he was drafted into Capt. David OWENS’ Militia Company in the Fall of 1776, and was stationed on Fishing Creek for about three months. John BOGGS, (BIGGS?) was his Lieutenant and James ARCHER the Ensign. Later he served under Capt. William HARROD on Fishing Creek. In 1780, he was in Capt. James ARCHER’s Company, scouting between Fishing Creek and Wheeling Creek. About 1777, Thomas SMITH married Mary WILLIAMS.



On page 450 is the following:



The REES name is found among the earliest settlers of the Tenmile. Chalkley in his History of Augusta County, Virginia says that Jacob REES, Sr., bought of William WILLIAMS on July 31, 1775, land on the Tenmile which WILLIAMS had purchased from John JONES, who had bought it from John SIMPSON, the original improver, on January 8, 1774. Jacob REES divided this land with William ROBINSON.



Note: I’m now reading History of Washington County, Pennsylvania by Boyd Crumrine. On page 81 Emanuel, Jacob and John SMITH were privates under the command of Capt. Nehemiah STOKELEY October 16, 1777. (I have more than 900 pages more to read in this book.) In old Baltimore Co., Maryland Mary, daughter of Emanuel SMITH, married Thomas SIMPSON.





BOTETOURT COUNTY, VIRGINIA



Among a list of volunteers in John MURRAY’s Company on 10 September 1774 were:[60]



John SIMPSON, Serg’t. and Wm. SIMPSON



In Capt. Phil LOVE’s Company of volunteers on the same date was:[61] James SIMSON



I’ve been told, but haven’t verified that SIMPSONs of Botetourt Co., Virginia were early residents in east Tennessee.
