My name is Doris Cepeda and I am the granddauther of John L. Mimms and the daughter of Doris H. Mimms-Jackson. Our family is of African-American heritage. According to John's death certificate, he was born in Richmond, VA in 1870. His father's name was John L. Mimms and his mother's maiden name was Louisa, but I suspect this might be her first name as well. He left VA around 1904 and arrived in Concord, NY where he met and married my grandmother Louise Moody. They had three children, Richard, Marjorie and Doris. My mother was 15 years old when her father died in 1934. We have no family photos; however, my mother recalls him talking of coming from Virginia. He lost all contact with his family in VA. Our family knows no members of his family and I and many others of his family would like to get to know his family. Current generations up here in MA from John have stretched out to 6 generations. Anyone with any information on John L, I would appreciate it if you contact me as each stone I have turned to date leads to a dead end. Much appreciated.
