For nearly 15 years the SIMS family has fascinated me. I worked with a group of SIMS descendants in 2001-2002 per email. Everyone shared their information, photos, and documents. The result was the biography of James SIMS, Pioneer of Nicholas County, (West) Virginia, written in early 2002. Shared with cousins on April 28, 2002, corrections were made on February 22, 2003, and the last revision was made on August 25, 2013. Early versions have been attached to hundreds of trees on Ancestry.com.
Since writing the biography, I have published more posts about James SIMS, his property, his occupation, his slaves, and his daughter Nancy Ann, my 4th great-grandmother. This page has been created as a Table of Content:
