7. Story. David Simpson (1839-1915) was son of Thomas Simpson (1784- ) and Susannah Bryant. David was married first to (unknown) Rice. He was married second to Mary Richardson. His third wife was Mary Maxwell McCain (1852-1910). Thomas was son of William Simpson Sr (1750-1821) and Martha Orr (1752-1833). Another poster says that Thomas Simpson was married to Susannah Byrd, not Bryant. In reply, Charlotte said she also had her listed as Susan Byrd of Rowan Co., NC, at one time, citing the 1911 article in the Waxhaw Enterprise (reprinted in the Monroe Enquirer in Oct. 6, 1950) by Ney McNeely. At some point someone sent Charlotte conflicting information, and she changed it, but has now misplaced the source of this information.
