Simpson's at St. Patrick
Hi Lillie.
We've chatted before, but, I have a descendant of Celestine Sylvester Simpson who might like to chat with you.
A Riney supposedly may have taken care of Ben Leo, when C.S.'s wife died.
Could you contact him at

Thanks, Gary

Hi Lillie
Hi Lillie,

Hope you are doing well. I haven't written you for quite awhile - just after
Jean passed. Now I am working on genealogy for my best friend and I ran across
her grandparents on Find A Grave and saw that you left an angel on his page. He is James
T. Wells, husband of Nancy Sparkman buried in Missouri. Are you attached in any
way with the Wells or Sparkman families? It would be neat if you were.

I am still working on the Simpson family as well as my own. As you know, it's a
never ending job; but I still enjoy it!

Please, let me know if there is a connection. My friend and I will certainly appreciate it.

Thanks and Take Care,

John Wiedenman
