I have an E.J. Simpson who married Polybird Ray in 1868 in Itawamba Co, Miss.
We do not know who E.J.'s parents were nor do we know his first and middle names.
The only info. I have on this E.J. is that he was born between 1817 and 1850 and most likely it was around 1830. The cousin who provided this was just guessing because we are at a brick wall about this E.J.
