    From the Simpson individuals, who are Kate's siblings, we can tellthat her maiden name was Simpson.  The Kemp stepchildren indicate thatKate L Simpson was married to someone named Kemp before she marriedOscar.  In 1880, there was a Kemp family living next door to Oscar'smother Sarah and her children.  This was James M Kemp age 26 and hiswife Elizabeth age 22, with one child Albert M 8 months old.  James'father was born in Tennessee, just as the Kemp father of Kate'schildren.

    I kater found her record of marriage to Oscar L Simpson, in which herlast name is Kemp.
