I would love to find a Sims relative in Clay County with direct lineage to Lewis Saxton Sims (1816-1901), who is buried with his wife, Arenda Babb Sims at Providence Cemetery in Delta. Someone must have an old family Bible with birth and death information in it.
Lewis was listed as having been blind from the 1870 census on. I am interested in finding out if he had an accident or a medical condition. Also, Arenda's death year was obliterated from her tombstone because the stone cracked and was put back together right over the year. You can read the "189-" but the actual year is covered with cement.
