Welcome to my site, I have invested over 25 years in researching as much detail as I could find into the
beginnings of our family and their experiences as the first immigrants to America. Here, you will find the vast
majority of this website concerns that research into a unique part of my family history and genealogy.

I had grown up in a very distinctive family. Some of which were coal miners, steel workers, and railroaders, hard
working honest people.  However some family members during prohibition and the 1929 depression in
Oklahoma resorted to the other more exciting side of the law to survive. Carrying on the tradition of the old Wild
West they became depression era outlaws, bootleggers, and bank robbers throughout Oklahoma, Missouri,and
states inbetween.   

There were many stories of life in Oklahoma and how hard it was during those times to survive. More
fascinating to a young boy were the stories of guns, gangsters and outlaws. These were some of the stories
that impacted my life growing up that I lived with and remember them like it was yesterday. Much of which was
kept secret from the younger generation
s in our family.  Often at the dinner table I was told  not to discuss
these stories or bring them up in front of others.  

One of those stories involved my father when he was a young child. In my search to uncover some of the
answers my father had about why his mother Eva and his father Fred Simpson abandoned him in 1929, I
uncovered vast amounts of detailed family history.   That history was printed in the newspapers across the
country during the 1930's. Thanks to the many researchers and the multitude of books that have been written I
have further discovered a great deal of additional history concerning my family.
