SIMPSONs (and CASWELLs?) of Monroe, Bradley and McMinn Counties, TN
Posted by: Tara Fields (ID *****1747) Date: June 20, 2006 at 17:05:11
  of 1003

Hi there,

I'd like to converse with anyone related to the following line(s). I'm
especially interested in HOMER CASWELL SIMPSON, son of Jacob (Jake)
and grandson of George C. Simpson.

General migration shows George C. Simpson in Monroe Co., TN in 1860.
George is in McMinn Co., TN for the 1870 Census. They stay here until 1910.
George, son Jacob (Jake) and some other members of the family move to
Bradley Co., TN for the 1910 Census.
In 1920 and 1930 the family is spread mainly between these two counties.

This bunch was prolific - George had 6 kids (4 living). Jacob had 15
(13 living). Jacob's brother William had 12 (11 living). Other brother
John B. didn't marry as far as I can tell. So there should be a ton of
descendants out there!
