Joshua White Simpson b Oct.21,1771,son of Reuben and Sarah(Sherrill)Simpson, m. _ Portman(NC).Joshua is found in the 1810 census, Wayne Co., also signed Petition for a Magistrate, dated about 1810. I believe this Joshua Simpson to be the father of Sarah Simpson m. 1831, John Ramsey,Jr. No definite connection between the two, but Sarah named her second son, Joshua.In Clarissa Smart's book The Vickerys of Wayne Co., Ky, Book II Related Families, suggests Sarah was probably the granddaughter of Reuben Simpson. Give me facts or feedback. Thanks.

Dear Patsy: I was looking for the father of Sara Simpson (she was the wife of John Ramsey, Jr.) Researchers have not been able to find out who her father was. I thought it likely that Joshua Simpson was her father. However, I have never found a way to prove that. John Ramsey, Jr. and Richard Ramsey were brothers.

Hi Mickey: The information that I have on the Ramsey family in Wayne Co comes from a book written by Betty Tuttle. Not much on them but she says that the first Ramsey recorded in Wayne Co KY was John who was the father of Richard and that Thomas was most likely the father of John. I am not sure who Sara Simpson's father was. The Christine Bramstedt that answered my other querry is from the same line that you are. Why don't you get in touch with her? I would hate to give you any bad information. Good luck! Patsy

Hi Patsy,
Do you have proof that John Ramsey's father is Thomas or is that simply from the family tradition reported by Betty Tuttle? So far I have not found any written info on this. My husband is descended from Richard Ramsey and Sarah Rector.

Just going by what was published in Betty's book. Sorry, I can't help any more. I am re-thinking Joshua' lineage even now. It seems as though he travelled with Robert, Ellis and Gabriel Simpson to IL and MO. They are sons of William and he is from the Simpson clan from VA and Warren Co KY. So am wondering how they all fit together. Patsy
