Jan. 24, 1927 California Democrat Sam Simpson passes.

Lived for 87 years in Southern Moniteau County Sam Simpson, 87 years old, who lived in Southern Moniteau county perhaps longer than anyone now residing there, died at the home of his sons, George A. and O. W. Simpson west of High Point at 7;30 o'clock Sunday Evening.

Mr. Simpson was born on what is now known as the young place, near where he died, Feb. 9, 1840, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh and Sarah Miller Simpson who immigrated from Kentucky and settled near High Point in 1835. He spent his entire life in the vicinity of the place where he was born.
Mr. Simpson who had a large circle of friends and acquaintances in the southern part of the county, often spoke of the early times in this section. One of the things he related was how his father had to ride to Boonville to get a patent to his land.

During the civil war he served in the enrolled state militia in the Jeff Hart command. Mr. Simpson was a member of the High Point Baptist Church for many years and was on the board of trustees of that institution. He spent his life as a farmer.

Surviving are two sons, George A. and O. W. Simpson and seven grandchildren.

Funeral services were held at 11 o'clock Tuesday morning, the Rev. T. M. McDonnell of Bunceton officiating. Burial was at the Woodman Cemetery at High Point.
