Both my maternal and paternal line is Sims and I am interested in comparing notes with you. The farthest I've been able to go back on my maternal line is to Waller/Walter/William who was born in Virginia but married his wife Mary Bradley around 1815 in the Abbeville District of South Carolina. I am in North Carolina at the present time (I believe), Columbus County, Bladen, Robeson, with William Sims Sr., who married Mary Soule. I believe that William's parents were William Sims who married Margaret Gray. Also, I believe that this William's father was James Sims, Sr. who died 02 November 1741 and who married Sarah Willis. Would you please look at my Sims line on my web page, http://www.theseverts.net

. Both Sims lines migrated to the southern part of Alabama around Pike, Lowndes, Butler, Coffee and Crenshaw Counties.
