This is my 2nd great grandmother.She was born probably in Cobb County Georgia. She died in Blount County Alabama in 1899. Her tombstone says she was 63 years old. That would make her birth year 1836. I am not sure her birth year is correct. I think she may have been born about 1842. The 1880 Blount County census list her age as 38. Since this is the only census I have been able to locate her in that is all I have to go by other than her tombstone. Mary Ann was said to have married John Simpson and had two sons by him before he was killed in the Civil War. Joe/Joseph, the oldest was said to have been born about 1858. He later was said to have been given away to an aunt, Jenny Trotter, never to be heard from again. The youngest, John C. Simpson was born in 1862 in Georgia and died in 1942 in Cullman County Alabama. John Simpson was said to have a brother-in-law, William Beasley. That is all I know about him. Next she married James B. Burton of Cobb County Georgia. I am trying to find Mary Ann's parents and possible siblings. If anyone recognizes her picture and has information on the Owens family please contact me. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
