THE SIMPSON CLAN Volume XVII, Issue 1 Summer 2001


Seeking the parents of John Frank SIMPSON, born August 29, 1885 in Parkersburg, West Virginia and died January 5, 1945 in Urbana, Illinois.

Also seeking information on James L. SIMPSON born 1831 in either Montgomery Co., Virginia or Monroe Co., West Virginia, died June 28, 1904 in Parkersburg, West Virginia; married Mary Jane WOODS (1827-1905). I have a great deal of information on his Civil War record, but need to know if he is related (grandfather?) to John Frank SIMPSON.

Contact Lisa Simpson, 10 Brook St., Port Henry, NY 12974

The following is from Charles A. Heavrin, 4832 Rolling Fields Dr., Memphis, TN 39128 who has some soft bound copies of his book, Simon’s Sons on the Simpson family available for $30.00 ppd. He wonders who was the father of William HEVERIN born in 1714 in Maryland, probably Dorchester County?

Looking for any Benton Co., Arkansas genealogical information on ancestors or descendants. Allen D. HALL Senior (1858-1936) married San Francisco (Fanny) SIMPSON (1859-1939) and had about 9 children. Fanny SIMPSON’s parents were Isaac SIMPSON and Louisa BAGGS. Any information would be helpful, as I have not had much luck at all with this line. Please contact Diane Frost Wiscarson, P.O. Box 301609, Portland, OR 97294.

More Descendants of William Simpson and Elizabeth Hocking

Reuben & William Simpson of North Carolina
Notes from Linda Bollinger

W. A. DAY born in 1844 left some writing in his own hand about the family history. I copied the whole thing from microfilm in the Dallas library. However, I found a page and a half of it transcribed in a Simpson packet that Byron Gibson sent me.

"I was born among the green hills of Back Creek, Iredell County, North Carolina on the 14th day of March 1844...My great grandfather, Isaac ROBINSON, came to North Carolina about the year 1747, about the time the SHERRILLs came and settled on the Catawba river near where the Mooresville bridge now crosses the river. He married Rachel SIMPSON. She had two brothers, Reuben and William, both soldiers in the Revolutionary war. William on the Whig side and Reuben on the Tory. When the battle of Ramseurs Mill between the Whigs and Tories was on, William was off on scout and hearing the sound he dashed off at break neck speed for the battlefield thinking he would get a chance to kill his brother Reuben, but his horse gave out and before he could reach the field on foot the Tories had fled and Reuben with them. He [Linda’s note: Reuben] had considerable property and after the war it was confiscated and he left the county about the year 1780.

"My great grandfather, Isaac ROBINSON, moved to Haywood County with his family, leaving my grandfather, John ROBINSON, then a boy about 10 years of age with his uncle Adam PERKINS, an old man living by himself..."

So--Isaac ROBINSON and Rachel SIMPSON moved to Haywood Co., North Carolina.  (Haywood was
formed out of Buncombe). W. A. DAY also said, according to Byron, that Isaac ROBINSON's mother was a PERKINS.
