Do you have any info on this Sims family in Baldwin Co.?
My William Sims, Sr. (c. 1755 Brunswick Co. VA - 1810 Baldwin Co. GA), married Judith Green, and moved from
Brunswick Co. VA in 1792 to
Warren Co. NC by 1793,
Hancock Co. GA by 1801,
Greene Co. GA by 1804, and
Baldwin Co. GA by 1808.
His obit said he was a Rev War soldier, and he left a will that's abstracted on your Baldwin Co. forum page.
His widow Judieth applied for the lottery in 1819.
My ancestor, his son William Sims, Jr. (1793 NC - 1866 MS), m. Tamar Lowe in Baldwin Co. served in the War of 1812,
moved to AL by 1819 and MS by 1844.
His other children were:
George Sims (c. 1781 - c. 1851 Green Co. AL)
Green Sims (c. 1782 - c. 1833 Perry Co. AL), m. Bethania Williams
Betsy Sims (c. 1786 - aft. 1820 Hancock Co. GA?), m. Robert Warren
Martha "Patsy" Sims (c. 1790 - aft. 1833 Chester Co. SC), m. Jacob Jackson
Frederick Sims (c. 1791 - bef. Mar 1827 Baldwin Co. GA), m. Sallie Baines, Susannah Jackson
Olive L. Sims (1792 - 1854 Macon Co. AL), m. John Tamplin
Benjamin A. Sims (c. 1797-8 - AL?) m. Elizabeth Carter
Do you know of any descendants of this family who are still around?
