Elizabeth H. Simpson
Lizzie was born on June 2, 1840 and died on April 6, 1929. She was the daughter of Paul Simpson, Jr. (1809-1849) and Hannah Thorndike Dyer.
Her father Paul, Jr. was the son of Paul Simpson and Hannah Sullivan.
Hannah Sullivan was the daughter of Daniel Sullivan and Abigail Bean.
So when Spiro V. Bennis married Lizzie Simpson, he was marrying into one of the longest family lines in Sullivan. Daniel Sullivan, Lizzie's great grandfather, was who the town of Sullivan was named after!
