Old Hickory Flat Cemetery - Simpson
Posted by: Val Holl (ID *****8516) Date: April 28, 2005 at 15:03:36

On this site http://www.rootsweb.com/~msbenton/cems.htm I located where my G-G-Grandmother is buried. (Etta Thompson Simpson). I suspect my G-G-Grandfather (James) & G-Grandfather, (Elmer R. Simpson) are buried there, too - but their names aren't on the list. I'd like to find out...

What sent me reeling is that there are three daughters of James & Etta's buried there that we never knew about. (Elmer's sisters!) They all three were teenagers when they died in 1902. My grandmom (Russie Ometra Simpson) always claimed that she was named for no one, but now I see she wasn't right about that!!! These three girls would have been her aunts. One is [T]russie and another is [S]ometra. (Third girl was Bonnie C.)

Is there any chance that the Old Hickory Flat Cemetery office could give me any more info about these girls? (Correct birthdays and what caused them to die all within a month of each other).

Thanks for any suggestions,
Val
