Minnie J. SIMPSON (1870-1960) was daughter of John B. SIMPSON and Sarah Ann BURTLE.
Minnie ("Mary Jane") married Sylvester O. GATTON in 1891 in Sagamon Cty., IL. I know of three children for them -- Madonna (?date), Sarah (abt. 1893), Edith (abt. 1895). Minnie remarried in 1899 to Thomas Jefferson ADAMS in Christian Cty. and had additional children including my husband's grandfather, William Brandon ADAMS.
I can't seem to find anything about Sylvester, and my mother-in-law and her sisters aren't sure if he died or if there was a divorce.
