Looking For a Sarah Cook(e) Wife of J. P. Simpson, 19th Century

+4 votes
Hello, I am looking for any information on my Great Great Grandmother, SARAH COOK(e). The only information I have for her is that she Might have been from Illinois, USA and that she was married to a man Whose only known name is J.P. SIMPSON. He may Have been from Illinois as well. They had at least 1 son, JOHN P. (Parker?) SIMPSON. He was born circa Dec. 1857 in Springfield Kentucky Or Missouri. JOHN P. SIMPSON had moved to Karnes County, Texas USA by the 1890's where he married Allie Craine/Crane. JOHN P. died in San Antonio Texas USA In 1932. I do not know if his parents lived in Texas With him, unfortunately. I apologize there is so little information I can relay. I am simply taking a chance someone from Wikitree May know something.

This may be Sarah and John P Simpson, on the census below.  Their son, John P is of the correct age?  If this looks like the correct family, you might try plugging in his siblings names/dates/locations to see if you can find more records using the free search tool at: https://familysearch.org/search.   Or try getting the death cert from the town clerk's office to see if it contains more information.  I couldn't find the birth records for the children listed.  See the links at the bottom, a John P b abt 1843 MO - with son James and or wife Cornelia (? widow White) are on census data also in Harrison, MO.
