77 According to an account by William Gaines Looney : Michael Looney, his brother Jonathan Looney and Benjamin (about 35) went buffalo hunting northwest of Black Mountain in Harlan County, Kentucky. On their return, when near Cumberland Gap, they noticed some "whet rocks" where they had been exposed by the uprooting of a tree during a storm. It was late in the day and they did not stop, because they susupected the presence of Indians from the behavior of their horses, but pushed on some distance before camping. Next morning while backtracking for the whet rocks they were attacked. Ben was wounded and Johnathan captured. Sometime later while Ben was resting, perhaps mortally wounded, an Indian killed him, and Michael escaped with nothing but his flint-lock rifle and on charge which he needed to get food during the three day and night return trip on foot. (Johnathan escaped much later, after he was gradually permitted increased liberty of movement.) LOONEY Benjamin (I0289)

He was in Greene Co., MO on June 30, 1870, when he made an affidavit that his brother, Arthur G. Looney served two tours in the War of 1812 to 1815. Benjamin went to Texas, near Gainesville, probably after 1870. LOONEY Benjamin III (I0427)

81 According to Kenneth Sims 6/7/2005, the spelling of Cynthia has taken on several forms. Kenneth has records in her father's hand in his bible and on papers written by her father as various forms of Syntha Ann, Sinthy, etc. She was known as Syntha Ann or Sinthy Ann and sometimes with a C. Kenneth's father's original social security application has it Syntha. An entry in 1937 in the pulpit bible at the Village Springs Methodist Church shows her death with an "S". The church no longer exists, but Kenneth says he understands the bible is in the possession of the Palmerdale United Methodist Church in Palmerdale, AL. Stories say she signed Cynthia on a deed, but Kenneth has not seen the proof.  LITTLE Cynthia Ann (I1356)

83 According to Kenneth Smith (5/2005) James' estate is mentioned in the estate records of Benton County, AL on March 10, 1843 and on April 12, 1843.

Census 1820
Not confirmed, but found what looks like James, Nancy, and two sons SC/Greenville County

Census 1830
Could not identify James and Nancy. Looked at all soundex SIMS in SC, GA, and AL.

Census 1840
Could not identify James and Nancy. Looked at every page in AL/Benton County where he died in 1843.

From: K. Sims Dec 2006 There is no will that I know of. I think that he died intestate. I have a copy of the estate package which is basically nothing but an inventory and results of the estate sale. Hutson's name is on it (as Hudson) as well as his brother Henry and Garrison Sims who went to Cherokee County Ga. and who might have been a brother. I have speculated that perhaps the Sims' came from Cherokee County, Ga. before 1843. It's almost like Garrison "returned home".

Someone evidently tried to file a suit (which was evidently never brought) at some point ( perhaps around 1843) to which the county sheriff R.S. Porter was made a
part as administrator. R.S. Porter was ordered by the court s in 1849 to file a final accounting . R.S. Porter responded in a statement to the court. I have
a copy of this statement stating that the estate was basically worthless. This is also in the estate package.

There also, oddly enough, is an estate settlement in Cherokee County, AL. (Cherokee is only about one or two miles from where the Sims' lived in Benton) around
1850 for a James Sims whose wife is also Nancy. Does not appear to have any other relationship to ours.

91 Alma and Neal were married May 14, 1940 in Piggott, Arkansas[from Stoddard Divorce records], then divorced on May 7, 1945. [Stoddard County Court records, book 17, page 96]. Alma and James were married May 8, 1945 in Arkansas, then divorced. They remarried June 25, 1947 in Arkansas. Alma and Neal remarried about 1967. You read this correctly; she was married twice each to two different men.

Jamile has a copy of the divorce papers from 1945 (Neal Dennison).
The second divorce (James Sims) was in Ensley, Jefferson Couty, AL, by attorney Herond Lowe.
The third divorce (James Sims) was in Bessemer, Jefferson Couty, AL on June 5, 1967, Record Number 23017.

Alma's birth certificate was not applied for until 1943, at which time she applied for an official "delayed" certificate in Stoddard County, MO. As proof of her age, she presented three pieces of information: an insurance policy with Prudential, a State of Illinois driver's license number 2-230-517, and an affidavit signed by her mother, Martha Walker. She was 27 at the time she applied for this birth certificate. Certificate number was 137206 issued April 26, 1943.

June 1947 Alma suffered a miscarriage and lost two male babies. She and James had divorced and she was living in Missouri. After the miscarriage, James went to Missouri to see her, and they decided to get married for a second time.

From Vicci Medler Sweeney in 2002: Clayborn Landers was her love and solemate when he left for WWII. While he was away, Alma married Neal Dennison. When Clayton returned from the war, Alma divorced Neal, thinking that she could then marry Clayton. However, while away during the war, Clayton had decided to become a minister, and he would not marry Alma because she was now a divorced woman.

Alma lived with her brother Theo and his family in Bakersfield, CA during the mid 1940's.

From Mildred Walker September 2002: Thanks for the picture of Granny Walker. I love that picture of her. She was about 59 or 60 when that was taken. Harman was overseas - France, Germany, etc. - and Granny lived with me that year in Dexter. Your mother, Alma, was working for Mr. Thompson's Studio in Dexter and took this picture of her. I fixed her hair and took her down to the studio. She's so pretty in this picture.

100 April 24, 1917 enlisted in Anniston, AL for the World War. He was 19 years old at the time. The application shows he was living in Clanton, AL at the time. He was discharged on June 17, 1919, with no injuries received in action.

1920 Census Crop Roy Bruce was living in Leeds, Jefferson County, AL He and a wife named Edith and sons Robert and Charles lived next door to Robert and Thelma Bruce. Robert was Cropp Boy's brother.

From an e-mail from Patti to Linda and Ina on 6/26/02: Does your Mom remember what Crop's wife's name was? the one he tried to do in?

From an e-mail from Linda to Howard on 7/25/02: I found Robert D and Thelma Bruce in Leeds Alabama, just where they were suposed to be BUT right next door was Roy Bruce with a wife, Edith, sons; Robert and Charles. Robert is 6 so he was born in about 1914 before WWI. So, Howard is it possible for you to go to the County Court House and look into Marriage Records to see if Cropp Roy married an Edith in about 1913 to 1914. There is a chance that Robert could be hers and not theirs but very doubtful. Could sure use this information. Also, if you could check on a divorce after 1937.

From an e-mail from Linda to Jamile on 7/25/02: He had just got out about 1937 to 1939 for cuting a woman's throat, think it was his wife and he did about 11 years. Which means that he would have been in the pen when the 1930 census was taken. His SS number was issued in 1932 in Pen and I remember reading that some of the first SS# were isssued to prisoners. So there is a very good chance that he was in prison in Pen. Mom remembers him and a woman, most likey his wife, and at least one child, a girl, showing up at their place in Leeds. Mom remembers Granny saying "after that she went back to him" or words to that effect. This was not Anna May and Leroy's mother. So by 1942 they were not together. He was in Brooklyn area and living with Anna May's mother. They were married years later, just before she or he died. Probably had to wait for a divorce to come through. Anna May remembers her dad saying he did 11 years, someting about doing time for his boss and tax money. Sure that this is the same time but for differnent reasons. Unless someone else did it and he took the blame. Could have happened that way but doubt it. Howard is going to look for information. Might ask your Dad or Harry if they know anything about Cropp Roy, he went by Roy, and what went down. Would have been in the late 20's. I am sure that by 1938 or 1939 both boy's would have been gone from home so that is why they might not have showed up at Granny and Grandad's and that is why Mom doesn't remember them. They weren't there.

From Ina Andre, September 2004: Copy of military enlistment card showing residence of Clanton, AL. Enlisted in Anniston, AL on April 24, 1917, at the age of 19 years, as a Private. Honorably discharged on June 17, 1919.

From Raymond Bruce in 2005: Moved to Flushing, NY about 1945.
About 1948 moved to Six Mile Run, PA; did not have running water, no electricity, and had an outhouse.
About 1951 worked as a baker in a private boys school in Lakeville, CT. Then he decided to open his own bakery. It did well and he moved just over the state line to Millerton, NY. There, he did well until a fire. He had no fire insurance. From there, he moved his family to Newburgh, NY around 1953. He got a job at a hotel in New Windsor, but that closed in a few years. He then went to work for a college in Dutchess County, on the other side of the Hudson River where he opened his own bakery, again.
