Am searching for information on my ggg-grandfather, George G. Sims, born abt. 1836 in TN; married Eliza Jane Tasker, daughter of Henry Tasker & Mariah Harvey, in Allegany Co., MD on Sept. 2, 1864. Shows up on voter registration rolls of Dist. 1, Allegany Co., MD in 1866 as "George G. Simes." 1870 Census has him listed as "George Semms" and living in Election Dist. 11, Allegany Co., MD. 1880 Census has him listed as "George Sims" and living in Altamont, Garrett Co., MD.

Am searching for George G. Sims' parents. Possible middle names are "Gaton," "Grant," and "Gates."
Does anyone out there have any information relative to my search? Thanks! Kim
