Sims Family

Submitted by Donna Rush Lamb

The David William & Harriet (King) Sims family 1st appeared in OK in the 1890 Territorial Census of the Chickasaw Nation. David b. 25 Dec 1820 in TN & Harriet b. abt. 1825 in NC were married in Autauga Co., AL on 28 Mar 1839. They were the parents of 6 children born in AL. All of these folks were not afraid of doing a days worth of work, whether farming the land, picking cotton, raising gardens & canning, running a dairy, or owning & working in a "Meat Market" store. Above all honesty was taught by the parents. A handshake was considered a binding contract.
