    Also in the bible was an apparent commercial reprint of a Simpson Family gathering (newspaper?) from the early part of the 20th century. Written at the top in ball point pen is a note that says: Dr. Simpsons father Henry & William Simpson were brothers


  • Simpson Family Meets July 4th5th

  • Simpson Family
  • Meets July 4th5th (Year not on article)

  • The descendants of Alexander Simpson will meet for preliminary organization at the Jasper Four Corners school house on July 4. They will attend the annual meeting at that time.

    Alexander Simpson with his wife Patty (Martha) Turk and one child Nancy, came from Scotland to Salem, Washington County, N.Y. Their other children were born in this country: John, Mollie (Mary), Jane, James, Martha, Alexander, Betsey (Elizabeth) and William.

    Andrew fought in the Revolutionary War with his father. He married Rebecca McWherter and they were parents to 10 children. He came to Jasper in 1807 or 1812, settled where the present village is located and built a log cabin where the Drake hotel stood in later years. He was a first master of Evening Star Lodge No. 44, F. and A. M., now in Hornell.

    The first Jasper town meeting was held in his home. His daughter married Samuel Gregg of Elmira and it was the first marriage ceremony in the town. His daughter Minerva married Jeffery Smith, one of the founders of Woodhull, and another daughter Jane married Ira Smith of Woodhull.

    Darwin, another son of Andrew, married Hannah Kinney. He was an early town collector. Later he moved to Turtle Point, Pa. And from there his daughter Hannah attended Alfred University and was among the first graduates. She later married Adoniram Spencer of Jasper, there they lived for many years. Their four sons and two daughters all were college students, and the four sons being college graduates. The late Alfred Spencer of Savona was the second of those sons.

    John, a son of Andrew, was the father of Andrew Jackson Simpson and Henry Simpson, both of whom lived in Troupsburg and had much to do with the organization and maintenance of the Troupsburg Fair. John, was married twice and his other children were Ira W. (who married Emma F. Hooper), Eunice who married Hiram Schoonover, Jennie who married Daniel Tucker, late of Canisteo; John, Lucy and Minerva.

    Some of the older residents of Jasper will remember Resolvo S. Wyckoff, prominent farmer in Jasper 60 years ago. His daughter married Charles Elsworth Simpson, son of Andrew Jackson Simpson. Ellsworth died in 1897 A daughter Mrs. Louise E. Staire has earned a fine reputation as a musical composer.

    At the same place and day the descendants of Jerome Madison Simpson and Nancy Ann Griffin Simpson will meet to form a permanent organization. Jerome was the adopted son of Alexander, second brother to Andrew. He was born in Salem, N.Y., December 12, 1771 and was married twice. The children by his first wife Lucy were William, John, Wheeler, Alexander, Jefferson and Charlotte; by his second wife Nancy were: Lucy, Sally Ann, Caroline Amanda, James, Monroe, Almon Bartlett, Nancy Maria and Harriet Sophia. On the death of Alexander 2nd, his widow Nancy and some of her children came to Jasper and settled on a farm near what later was known as the John Murphy farm. Sally Ann, Caroline Amanda, Almon Bartlett and Jerome Madison spent the remainder of their lives in Jasper where they were buried. Almon was a good businessman and accumulated considerable property. Jerome was a justice of the peace for 40 years.

    Perhaps no better place can be found in this part of the state than the town of Jasper – and adjoining towns—for the organization—where for so many years members of the Simpson clan resided as bulwarks of the community.
