I'm puzzled as to why my grandpa, Lawrence Simpson, was not listed in the obituary. I recently found out that he was not a biological son of Joseph Woodrow Simpson, maybe that's why. If anyone views this and knows who Joe Knapp is, please reply back to me, that is my grandpa's biological father and I'm trying to find out more about him.

Have you looked for Lawrence Birth certificate? Or adoption records? Baptism records?
And consider there may have been ill feelings between the 2 or within the family that he was not named . Do you have any dates, maybe that will help us help you find more info.
Have you looked for birth record or death record, marriage record census records for Joe Knapp?

Ah, THERE he is. I used to have an account on here and I had all of the dates entered for my grandpa. As far as Joe Knapp goes, when I went to search for him all I could find was a possible match, no confirmation though. My great-grandma Ida Mae was possibly married to him, but seeing as how she married Woodrow Simpson and my grandpa took his name, looks like things didn't turn out so well between her and Mr. Knapp. My real interest is in my great grandmother Ida Mae's lineage, as I have heard she was kin to the Wichita tribe. There's also a family rumor that my grandpa used to take care of an elderly African-American woman when he was a boy, who he was possibly related to. I'd love to find out who SHE was. One more thing... I discovered that the Simpson's and Knapp's lived very close to each other, which is very strange to me. I'd really be interested in finding out what happened back in the day.

Okay so I just got off the phone with my aunt, and I was mistaken. Mr. Knapp's first name was not Joe, it was LOU. And from the story my aunt told me, Lou Knapp got my great grandmother Ida Mae MILLS (just found out her maiden name) pregnant. My grandpa Larry was delivered by a midwife who was Lou's (possible daughter?) Annie Knapp. The first census you listed is relevant, I've definitely seen that one before and I was actually the one that made the Deon (dean) change when I had my account. Because that's where I get my name :) The second census is not relevant however, because Conner was not her maiden name. Hope that will help you out a bit more. I really appreciate your help by the way. I'm not too good with this genealogy stuff but I'm really interested!

This is all great information! I am also moving to the next Simpson, Joseph Woodrow Simpson Jr., which I think is the son of Joseph Woodrow, Sr. Can anyone help?
