My paternal grandfather's family (the Mims) lived in Edgefield County, but from family oral history may have been in FL at one time and mixed with Seminole Indians. I have been told that my great grandfather was half Seminole. His name was Essie or Ess Mims, his first wife's name was Rose Lee Kelley (my great grandmother). My grandfather's name was Richard Essie Mims. My paternal grandmother's name was Katherine Upson. Her parent's names were Major Upson and Elizabeth or Lizzie Hammond. Her paternal grandparents were originally from Alachua, FL. If you have any information on either family, your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
