Photo of Pleasant Nelson Simpson

Isn't the Internet a wonderful tool for helping us with our genealogy? I just discovered a third cousin once removed and we've been sharing information via e-mail about our common ancestor, Pleasant Nelson Simpson, who is my third great-grandfather.

She shared with me this photo of Pleasant, with his son, grandson, and daughter-in-law, which someone else shared with her!

Circa 1903 Left to right: Pleasant Nelson Simpson (grandfather, abt 79 years old also two years before his death), Louis Poindexter Simpson (son, abt 37 years old), Dexter O. Simpson (grandson, abt 12 years old), Eva Jane Richardson Simpson (daughter-in-law, abt 31 years old). Probably taken in Texas.

My line from him goes like this:

GGG grandparents - Pleasant Nelson Simpson married Elinder Katherine Martin
GG grandparents - Emily Susan Simpson married William A. McVicker
G grandparents - Henry Ermon McVicker married Edna Mae Williams
Grandparents - Rachel Mary McVicker married Sterling Norman Beard Junior
Parents - Living

Many thanks to the person who originally shared this photo and to my newfound cousin who shared with me.
