My Great Grandfather John Simpson is reported to have had a family of wife
and several children in, or about, Moscow Idaho. He died of exposure circa
1898 after a blizzard rescue gold prospecting at a local mountain.
John from Northern Ireland was a Civil War veteran from 1862, on the Union
side, initially in the fighting ranks then the commissariat.
Any help would be appreciated in tracing the family.
All the best
