Looking for information on the family of Dr. James W. Simpson of Grant & Owen Counties, KY. I am Dr. Simpson's g-grandaughter, grandaughter of his 2nd son, Roscoe Morgan Simpson. Dr. Simpson is the son of Morgan James Simpson & Letitia Gaugh; born 10/11/1852, died 1/12/1926. Attended Medical School in Louisville, KY. Practiced as general practitioner in New Columbus, Owen County, KY. Especially interested in information on his 1st marriage to Amanda Tully. We know they had a daughter, Letitia Simpson, who was raised in Owenton by various family members after the death of Amanda. Dr. Simpson married Sarah Belle Jackson with whom he had the following children: Simon (12/1883), Byron Octerlone "Doc" (b. 3/1885, d. ), Roscoe Morgan (b. 5/1886, d. 1949), Fannie Belle (b. 10/1888, d. 7/1971), Sue Edna (b. 9/1891, d. 3/1994), Willie (5/1893), Clara Dean (b. 11/1894, d. 2/1976), Myrtle Grace (b. 12/1896, d. 9/1979), Flotilla (6/1898), Capitola (b. 9/1900, d. 9/1996). Trying also to find information on Simon, Willie (legal name William I think) & Flotilla. Aunt Cap taught for many years, first at Morehead University & retiring from the Covington, KY school system in 1960 having been English teacher at Holmes High School. Aunt Myrtle & Aunt Sue both worked for Gidding-Jenny dept. store in downtown Cincinnati. Aunt Clara married Virgil Chapman & was superintendent of Owen County Schools for a time. Any information on these family members would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!
