Jim, The parents of Hozie T. Sims were James M. Sims and Mollie C. Watson. They can be found in Sanford County, AL in 1870, and in Lamar County, AL in 1880, 1900 and 1910. Hozie and Lovie are buried at Centerhill Cemetery in Hamilton, Monroe County, MS. Hozie and Lovie first appeared in Monroe County, MS on the 1930 census. I have no information on the Newell line. Good luck.
