Hi! Would you by any chance have the name Eloise G Simpson? I know she was born in Pickens county. She is my great grandmother. I know she married Roy D Clark from Birmingham and moved to Michigan. That's all I know about her.

Mrs. Lee,
I am sorry but I have not come across that name so far in my research. Do you know her fathers name? What about siblings? Let me know if you know any of these and I will check my tree for their names. Wish I could be more help to you.

Through a contact on this message board, I have found out that Eloise's parents were named Henry Harrison Simpson and Ida Mathews. She has brothers by the name of Robert E Lee, Patrick Henry, Ira Cleveland, Louis Grady, John T Morgan,Stephen Douglas, and George Dewey. She has 1 sister named Ida Lee. Eloise's full name is Frances Eloise. I hope you can find something on your tree about these people. It would be nice to find some family somewhere, since I have never known my real grandparents on this side.

Thanks for your resposes.

Mrs. Lee,
I do not have any of the names you mentioned in my tree.
However, a few months ago I received an e-mail from a woman named Sara Simpson Enock. She lives in England but was born and raised in Pickens County,Alabama. Reform, to be exact. She was asking me if I had any info on her grandfather Ira Simpson. I didn't know anything about him,but, I would be willing to bet he is your Eloise's brother.
I am going to give you her e-mail address so that you might exchange what you know with her. I hope you can help one another.
If I can help you in any other way please let me know.
Jay

Surnames: NEWELL, BOYD
Jeannie, I am primarily a Newell researcher. My line ties back to Sarah (Boyd) Newell, dau of Robert Boyd, Vet of War of 1812. There were several Simspons married into the Newell lines. I have also communicated with Jay concerning Nola Boyd, who married Coney Dial Simpson, and descends from Robert Boyd through Boyd lines. I have a Robert Lee Simpson m/abt 1914 to Emily Newell, dau of Rufus M. Newell. Ira Cleveland Simpson was the 2nd husband of Sarah Cordelia Newell, dau of Rufus M. Newell. They married Jul 4, 1905. I have the names of children of these two families, but little else. Rufus Newell is the son of Robert Boyd Newell, my gtgtgrandfather. Robert is son of James and Sarah (Boyd) Newell.
