Adam Simpson was born in Ballysadare, Sligo, Ireland. He went to Ontario, Canada, in the 1850's, and then he returned to Ireland in 1858 to marry Harriet E. Farrell 16 Aug 1858 in Killoram, Sligo, Ireland. On the return trip home on the ship record, they are listed as Mr. and Mrs. Simpson. They moved to Webster City, Hamilton, Iowa, in 1873; Moved to Duncombe, Webster, Iowa, in 1900. Their 14 children include:
Adam Farrell Simpson, Emma L. Simpson-Shick, Jennie Simpson-Black, George, Medoph William, Maria C., John, Maud, Edith Susan, Albert, Charles Trevor, Edward Arthur, Walter Stewart,and Harriett.

On the marriage certificate, Adam's father is Adam Simpson (this is not correct) and Adam probably put his own name in the blank, or his uncle's, who was probably in Ireland at when he was married and the bride's father was not named on the marriage document. On Adam's death certificate his father's name is George, whom we find also immigrated to Canada. Upon researching wills in LDS Library, Salt Lake City, Utah, in 2011, "Adam's Uncle Adam Simpson's will was found, and his Uncle with his same name was a naval surgeon, was not married and did not have any children, and he listed brothers and nephews, who would inherit his property in Sligo, Ireland.
