7 SIMON PETER KEMPER, (son of Peter Kemper), born May 31, 1842, died February 12, 1915; resided at Hinton (Boone County), Missouri; married Susan Fountain Warnock, daughter of John and Cyrena Hicks (Fountain) Warnock, on August 22, 1869.

The History of Northeast Missouri states that during the Civil War, Simon Theter Kemper "espoused the cause of the Confederacy. During that conflict he served under Generals Price, Van Dorn and Hindman, attaining the rank of sergeant, as had his grandfather in the Revolution, until captured in the battle of Prairie Grove, Arkansas. He was then brought a prison to the old McDowell College in St. Louis, where he was confined a month or more. His brother, William B. Kemper, was a captain in the regiment of Col. Odon Guitar of the Federal army then stationed at Rolla, Missouri. Learning of this, Sergeant Kemper visited his brother while enroute to St. Louis and through the influence and correspondence of the latter with officials of the Federal army his release was effected. The remainder of the war period, Simon Peter Kemper spent in New Mexico. After the war, he returned to Boone County and took up farming, the occupation which he successfully followed throughout his active years. He secured a portion of his grandfather Crosswhite’s estate by purchase from his father and added to this until he held 308 acres at the time of his retirement in 1903, since when he resided in Hallsville, Missouri."
