I need help big time. Once, I had in my possession a list of all my ancestors. It was my grandmother's. I was around eight or nine at the time, so it wasnt a big deal to me. Its lost now, and all I have is names jumbled in my mind. I remember the name Simpkins being used quite repeatedly. I know the family was from West Virginia. My last name is Foster, but I believe that these Simpkins were probably kin to America Francis Goddard, Rosa Jane Kincaid, Hattie Basham, or possibly a Cox(James, Minerca). They are probably from southern West Virginia. Fayette, Kanawha, Raleigh, Summers, Nicholas, ect. Any help is needed and appreciated. Thank you, Kaci Helene Foster

The Simpkins that I am looking for may also be linked to Lemmons. It would be in the 1800's. Most likely early 1800's. At that time, West Virginia wasnt a state, so it would be classified as Virginia. Thanks, Kaci

Do the names Harry Lee, Lewis, or Lawyer Simpkins ring a bell?

I have been searching for years for my grandmothers past and i did not know her birth name. Just recently I esnt for my fathers social security application and it says her name was Ida Simpkins. She married Walter Boggess and he died in the end of the 1930's and then she went to N.Y. and married John Barton. She had three children, Roy my father. Paul my uncle. Ruby my Aunt. Do you know these names. If so you can reach me at two addresses. LHorn10269@aol.com or
LHorn75139@aol.com Thank you

Don't feel bad about being lost. My husband didn't even know his dad came from a large family until around 1996, when he finally tracked his dad down. That was a 15 year stretch between contacts. His mother and grandmother had always told him his dad had only one brother, but he has 12 siblings. The last we heard there were three left living in Gallopolis, Ohio, including his dad.
