I am looking for information on my grand mother, Lily Simpson, born in Warren Co. Aug. 1870. Her father was Andrew Jackson Simpson, b. AL and moved to Warren co. about 1862. she had an older sister, Amanda and a younger brother named Brack. It isn't much but that's all I have. The Simpsons may have gone to TX around 1885 or so.

Known as "A.J.", he was born in MO and went to KY around the time of the Civil War.  After his first wife, whose name is not currently known, died, he married Nancy Williams Smith, the sister of William Joseph Williams, his son-in-law.  His children called her "Aunt Nancy".

Andrew and Nancy had the following children:

  15 F i
  16 M ii
Grover Cleveland SIMPSON was born Sep 1886 in Texas.
  17 M iii
Andrew Jackson , Jr. SIMPSON was born Apr 1893 in TX.

10. William Joseph WILLIAMS (Thomas ) was born Dec 2 1862 in Alabama. He died Feb 2 1935 in Grantham, Marshall County, Oklahoma and was buried in Oakland Cem., Oakland, OK.

In a phone conversation from John Edd Long, Aunt Lola's son, in a phone conversation in Feb, 1993 to Edwina W.

W.J. Williams met and married Lily Simpson in Texas (married in Austin in
1884) either in Hutto or Georgetown.  They had 13 children, with 11 living to
adults.  He had a brother Zack.  Zack's wife was Fannie and they had a dau.,
Winnie who married R.B. Jones.

The left Texas in a covered wagon around 1904 to go to OK (Indian Terr.) to
buy Indian land.  They joined a wagon train in (Killeen?), TX.   While camped in
Kaleen, they met a Scotsman named Gid Nichols, who started courting their
oldest daughter, Julia.   W.J.  "Uncle Bill" ran him off, so he went to Salina, TX, where
his sister lived knowing the wagon train would pass through there.  He waited
and followed it on horseback to OK. The wagon train had to ford the Red
River as there was no bridge.

When they got to Madill, OK, Stark Washington told W.J. that if he went to
Tishamingo, the capital of the Chickasaw nation, the Indians would sell him
land.  He went right away but it wasn't true.  When he returned to Madill, an
Indian sold him land in Grantham for 25cents an acre.

Gid Nichols convinced Julia to run away with him to Salina, TX and get
married. She was 15 years old.

W.J. and Lily and 6 of their 13 children are buried in Madill, OK   (I guess
that would be 7 of them now, with Uncle Haskell there.)

He (John Edd) also told me that Brack Simpson moved to Marshall Co., OK long
after W.J. and Lily.   He was a foreman for the R.R.
