Thomas, John, and Elias Simpson

Thomas, John, and Elias settled in Cass County in the autumn of 1828, according to the Cass County history done in 1882. I am a descendant of Thomas, through his son, John, his son, G. D., and his son, William Jasper, my great grandfather. The Cass county history aforementioned is a wonderful county history. Does anyone know where I can get a copy? Also, it seems that Thomas is married in Pickaway, with John and Elias in Ross counties Ohio. The census record states that Thomas is born in Virginia. The history notes that their ancestor John Simpson, a Scotchman, fought in the Revolution. I found in the Revolution War Extracts of Pension records there is a John Simpson that dies in Pickaway County after 1821, living in Ross County in 1818, who enlists in Winchester, Loudon, Virginia. There happens to be a James Simpson, who enlists from there also. It seems there is a possibility these two men could be brothers. Does anyone know of this particular line of Simpsons? I'm also curious to find out where in Missouri John went (according to the Cass County history). Thanks!
