Reuben and Betsey Simper
Betsey Anderson was born August 30, 1880 in Cottonwood, Utah, as the third child and second daughter of Anders and Ingrid Anderson. In 1903 she married Reuben Massey Simper. It is unclear if the Simpers came to Idaho at the same time as the Anders and Ingrid Anderson family, but they did spend the majority of their married life on their farm in the Thomas area north of the Wilson school. The Simpers were the parents of three children: Mary, Ruby and John.
Betsey passed away in 1943 and is buried in the Riverside-Thomas cemetery along with her husband Reuben.
