Julia  Simpson Jenkins (mother) B 1874-5 AL ( Greatgp) they married 1894.Question is Julia Simpson Jenkins/. parents Samuel Simpson b about 1847-50 AL? TN, NC SC /Jane Brewer b abt 1850-55 Tn, AL NC.and was Jane's mother a Frazier/Frazer from Jackson county, AL?


thank you for your help

It appears from comparing the census data - identifying siblings - and the death certs confirm that Julia Jenkins was the dau of Sam Simpson and Jane Brewer.  Her brother Ben's death cert lists Jane as 'Rebecca Jane Brewer' - don't know if that helps.  Also, census data list approx birth Month/Year for Sam and Jane.  Maybe that will help in your search.

Good luck - all from
