There is an SAR application for Jeremiah Simpson, grandfather of William. Jeremiah is said to recognized as a patriot for furnishing supplies to the army. Jeremiah's wife said to be Elizabeth, no surname. His son was a William Simpson, born between 1770 and 1780, that married Letty Walters.
I note that this William's wife is listed as Martha Mayhue in the application, not Martha Gunter. They married 24 Dec 1829. It is interesting that all vital records in the family down to the applicant cite Pittsylvania Co, VA as the location.
