I found your post on RootsWeb message boards concerning SIMPSONS . ( dated 1998 )

What SIMPSON Family are you researching?

I am a direct descendant of a SAMUEL SIMPSON, born 1809 in Pa. and died 1897 in Fulton Co, Pa. His wife's name was MARY "POLLY" PITTMAN. They had 6 children ( 3 boys and 3 girls ).

I am trying to find who SAMUEL'S parents were and whether he had any siblings. I can't seem to get back any further than SAMUEL, though I do have info on his wife and children.

From what I've gathered thus far, there seems to be a connection to the GRANT SIMPSONS, but am not certain just what the relationship was, at this point. Some evidence points to SAMUEL being a brother of HANNAH SIMPSON GRANT. That hasn't been "proven" yet, however.

Any info on SIMPSON Families GREATLY appreciated!

I am happy to share what I have, if interested.

I'm looking for information on a "Hetty" ____ Simpson who married Elisha Helton around 1844 and had a son Elijah Helton b/1846.

I can't find her or son Elijah in the 1850 - 1880 census??

Elisha is found with his mother in 1850 census and no mention of Hetty or his son? and by 1860 he's with a 2nd wife Esther "Hetty" Osbourne and son Carter, then later have a son in 1860 also named Elijah.

Would like to know more about Esther and where did my grt grt grt grandfather Elijah go before getting married in 1881 to Louisa Vaughn???
