Matthew and Simpson/Simson
- Researching the surnames MATTHEW and SIMPSON/SIMSON.
George Matthew (b. c.1775 - parents unknown) married his second wife
Elspet Simpson/Simson in Peterhead 1801.
Their children were John, Janet, Grace, and Elspet. John (Ann
McStephen) and Grace (Alexander Soutar) emigrated to Canada. (Canadian
lines have been researched.)
The name of George's first wife is unknown. His known son, Alexander,
fought at the battle of Waterloo, received a medal, and enroute home
died from an unknown illness.
Any of this familiar to anyone? Would like to fill in the gaps.
