Information mostly from my cousin, Lucille Garner, of Jacksboro TX. She visited Simpson cousins in Washington Co. AR & may have transcribed data from family Bible. In addition to two Ritter marriages, we have direct Simpson ancestry through Keziah Simpson Reid [Reed].
Note: many deaths within two years suggests a communicable disease like TB.
