Josiah Simpson was appointed as Territorial Judge by President Madison. He was the MS. County namesake. He was a native of Penn., educated at Princeton, studied law, and married Miss Stewart near Fredricksburg, VA. He resided at a place then called Green Hill, in the vicinity of Natchez, Now known as Devereux Hall. He left an only daughter, who became the wife of the Hon. Thomas L. Dobyns, who resided at Rodney, MS.( This was taken from An Early History Of Simpson County, MS. By BEE KING and compiled by Frances B. Krechel.)
