Birth: Nov. 11, 1773
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 30, 1865

Wife of Alexander Simpson. He is believed to have been born about Sept. 27, 1775 and died May 19, 1820. Burial location not provided in Simpson family records at the Fairfield Public library at this time.

Abigail Sanders Simpson -

Aged: 91 yrs. 8 mns. 19 days.

Confirmed children:
Elizabeth Simpson Westenhaver.
Samuel Simpson

It is believed that there is an Anna Simpson Hurd (Mrs. Forrest Webb Hurd), 1803-April 16, 1886, who may have been another daughter. According to a Simpson family group sheet she is buried at "Woodhill Cemetery", presumably in Jackson county, Oregon. The only cemetery with a name close to that found listed is "Woodvill Cemetery". Neither Forrest nor Anna have F/A/G memorials in place for them by other contributors, so her burial location cannot be confirmed by this contributor. Any family clarification would be appreciated!

Possible, but by no means confirmed, other children are: Abraham, Stephen, Oliver, and Alexander. No information other than these names is provided on the Alexander Simpson family group sheet at the Fairfield Public Library, Fairfield, Iowa - these names are provided for research only, but NOT confirmed otherwise.

Grandson who died and is buried in this plot:
Arlistus Westenhaver .
