Thank you for your message. The James S. Hemphill in
Carroll County,Ms. is the same Simpson Hemphill who was
a partner in the first store established in Newbern in
Hale County,Al in 1829. James S. Hemphill had seven
children born in Alabama,but never appeared on an
Alabama census. A correlation of the 1840 census of
Greene County,Al.(where only age and sex of family
members are given)for the household of William Hemphill
,and the 1850 census of Carroll County,Ms. for James
S. Hemphill shows that the family of James Simpson Hemphill
was part of the household of his father William Hemphill when they lived in Alabama.Abigail had one more child after moving to Mississippi,and died not long after. He married Ann Eliza (Mabry)
Moore,a widow with children, the wife cited in your
message. He was born in 1807 in Williamson county
Tennessee,and probably came to Alabama with his parents.
I am certain he was married somewhere in the area of
Greene,Perry,Marengo, or Tuscaloosa.
Thank you for your interest.
