Welcome to my blog and it’s all about ancestry of the Simpsons from Virginia and the Tabers from Rhode Island and Connecticut. Two families joined together by marriage in 1960 of William Franklin Simpson Jr. from Virginia and Linda Ellen Taber from Connecticut.
Oh boy, as my late Grandfather William Franklin Simpson Sr, known as Bill, would say, there were a lot more marriages! Our lineage, as found so far, introduced heritages from England, Scotland, Ireland, and Prussia. What a mix! It is truly my belief that each of the Simpsons and Tabers today can attribute their actions, quirks, beliefs, values, etc. to their heritage, and some to a specific person.
Example, I’ve been told many times that I have the same mannerisms as my Aunt Barbara Taber who married Collins. I never had the pleasure of knowing her, yet it is to those who knew her, an uncanny experience as they watch me interact with others. Each of us and you share this unique design passed down through centuries of those who came before us.
I’ve researched the Simpson’s and Taber’s for years on and off. My blog will share what I found to be an obsession into the lives of people I’ve never met and a passion for who we are, as I create mini stories about my ancestors.
