Hello all. I have information on this family. Robert Simpson died in the war of 1812. He was a POW captured at Fort Detroit while under the command of US Gen. Hull. He was imprisoned in Quebec. I suppose that after word of his death reached his wife Rebecca, either in Tennessee or Kentucky, is when Ezekiel Lyon petitioned the courts for guardianship of the minor heirs of the Simpson estate. Following this, Rebecca married a fellow by the name of Abraham Lisenby and the family removed to DeWitt/Sangamon county Illinois. Ezekiel Simpson parted with the family at this time and moved to Carroll County Tennessee. Asher Simpson and William Simpson married Henrietta Willis' daughters (Illinois). Margaret Simpson married her stepbrother Benjamin Lisenby. If someone has records of Robert's time as a POW,ETC! please advise.
