History of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, with Biographical Sketches of
Many of its Pioneers and Prominent Men
Chapter LXVI. Martic Township.<1<[1 By S. C. Stevenson.]

Among the oldest families in this section are the Simpsons. They purchased a
property in Martic, about two miles south of Rawlinsville, in 1821, and have
resided upon it from that date up to the present time (1883). The father of
the family, John Simpson, was married to a daughter of Roger Douts. From
this union resulted eight children,--James, Mary, Sarah, Robert (deceased),
William (deceased), Jane, and Bartholomew, and one who died in childhood.
The family, especially the male members, are men of note in the community in
which they live. James, the oldest, has held several offices of trust and
profit in the township. He was auditor of the township for many years, and
held the office of assessor from 1840 up to 1858. Bartholomew was a member
of the school board for a period of not less than twelve years, and during
all that time labored solely for the good of the schools of the township.
All the members of this family are noted for their hospitality,
public-spiritedness, devotion to the cause of the right, sober, industrious,
and pious men. They labored earnestly for the good of the community.
