I suspect your Simpsons and mine are connected a few generations before Texas. Do locations in Caldwell/Livingston Counties KY, Lincoln/Rowan Counties NC, Augusta Co VA, or old Baltimore/Harford County MD mean anything to you? Or surnames Hawkins, Perkins, Sherrill, or Robinson?
If your family has a legend about William Simpson 1721-1825, then we gotta talk! Please write me at simpsonseeker at yahoo dot com.Thanks, Pj
