Here is my Number 5 of my Top 10 Genealogy Mysteries:
Nathaniel Simpson born between 1760-1779 in England, died after 1842
The Known Facts
On 07 Oct 1799 Nathaniel Simpson married Ann Latcham in Westfield, Sussex England. They were my 5th great-grandparents.
On 20 July 1800 my 4th great grandfather Charles Simpson was born to Nathaniel and Ann in Hailsham, East Sussex England. I have not found any other children born to Nathaniel and Ann. By 1822 Charles was in Kent where he married Elizabeth Whibley in January of that year in St. Marys, Chatham, Kent. By the 1841 Census Charles and his wife and family are found in the village of Wouldham in Kent England. There is no sign of his parents in the village.
I have not found any other record of Nathaniel or his wife Ann so this is definintely one of my biggest challenges. I've consulted FamilySearch, FindMyPast, Ancestry, UK Archives, Sussex OPC and British Newspapers without success.
