Simpson History





Husband Henry Simpson Halley Jr.
  Birth 10/2/1789 Fairfax Co. VA
  Death 9/6/1872 Saline Co. MO
  Note Several years after his wife's death, Henry S. Halley Jr. visited his two sons, J. Alfred and Dr. H. Joseph Halley in Missouri and died at Alfred's home on 6 Sep 1872. He was buried in Salt Pond Baptist Cemetery, Saline Co. Mo., since transportation of the deceased back to Virginia was not practical in those days. Unfortunately, the Salt Pond Cemetery is almost completely destroyed now and only about four or so tombstones are left, Henry's is not one of them.
