Information from my cousin, Lucille Garner, of Jacksboro TX. She visited Simpson cousins in Washington Co. AR & may have transcribed data from family Bible. She called her Simpson kin “salt of the earth.” We have a direct Simpson ancestry through Keziah Simpson Reid [Reed] also. Both families were probably Scots Irish, like the Wilsons.
