I am trying to locate the family of THOMAS SIMPSON, who married AGNES BLACKWOOD in 1794, Greene Co., TN. Some information I located showed the parents of Thomas to be HENRY SIMPSON and MARY? This information showed a birth date of 1744 for THOMAS.
Also, who were the parents of FRAN JANE SIMPSON who married JOHN M. BLACKWOOD in 1851, possibly TN?
JOHN BLACKWOOD and his wife, ANN ?, had a daughter, ANN NANCY, or NANCY ANN possibly AGNES who was born about 1783, and resided in Greene Co., TN. ANN NANCY's brother, ANDREW, had a son, SIMPSON. This name was used from that point forward in the BLACKWOOD line.
JONES KENDRICK/KINDRICK was listed as "a dear friend" and executor of the Will of JOHN BLACKWOOD. This Will was written on June 14, 1789 and was entered into Probate on August 15, 1789. LUCINDA SIMPSON was married to LEWIS KENDRICK in 1810, possibly in Bourbon Co., KY. (info from a Kendrick researcher, no documentation). I don't know if there is any connection here.
I thought I noticed that the SIMPSON name is connected to the CARTER line in TN, as well as the Galbreath line. These two family names are tied into the WEEMS family in Greene Co., TN. JOHN WEEMS (married to KITTY ?) was appointed guardian to the minor children of JOHN BLACKWOOD.
Greene County, Tennesee Court, No 273, Will of JOHN BLACKWOOD Will book 1, pages 51 & 52. Minutes of Court, Feb. term 1793; Greene County TN Court Records, County Court Minutes, Book 1(1783 - 1796), pgs 273 - 274, JOHN WEEMS appointed guardian for Nancy Blackwood and Martha Blackwood orphans of John Blackwood decd and enters into bond with WILLIAM GALBREATH & JOHN Wm BOWERS his Securities in the sum of 200 for the faithful discharge of his guardianship."
For some time, I have been trying to find the surname of ANN, wife of JOHN BLACKWOOD. I, also, have been attempting to locate the family bond I suspect exists between JOHN WEEMS and JOHN BLACKWOOD. I suspect that JOHN WEEMS' wife, KITTY, is a blood tie to ANN BLACKWOOD, but can find no facts to back this up.
Could ANN and KITTY be from the SIMPSON line?
Any information would be greatly appreciated, Linda Cashen Gaunt
