I concur with 99% of what she posted... my point of contention is Thomas Mims1707-1779 who married Grace Britton(my line) is son of Thomas and Amelia Martin Mims per page 25 of the St. Peter's Parish Register where it states "Thomas son of Thomas Mims baptized 15 Feb. 1707." We are very fortunate that so many Parish records still exist. Tarleton destroyed many county records during the Revolution, Yankees did their part and random fire destroyed more. Many counties have no pre-Civil War records at all.
Second disagreement is I find no documentation to show any connection between Thomas Mines(Mimes)1600 and Thomas Mines(Mimes) 1625 from Flowerdew Hundred as being parentage to Thomas Mims 1656-1711, wife Anne, our Patriarch.
I agree that your David must be Elizabeth Cullen's husband. He was born in Henrico and did have a daughter Elizabeth and they lived in Chatham Co. He was in the Chatham Co Militia in 1772 as Sergeant along with brothers Joseph Jr., Martin, and William Britton Mims. Joseph went to Ga and was scalped by Indians in 1778. This event was well documented by eye-witnesses at the fort. David's father was Lionel and Mary Anne Martin Mims' oldest son, Joseph 1708-1775. He left a paper-trail through Bertie and Edgecombe countIES. The William Barefoot in the Thomas Mims deeds in Bladen Co is my ancestor. His son James Barefoot married Thomas and Sabra Joyner Mims daughter Delilah. 6 more generations is me.
