This page was dedicated to the descendants of David Allen Rimes & Elizabeth Albritton who came from Georgia to Florida in the early to mid-1800's. David Rimes lived in Florida Territory before it became a state, served in the Confederate army in a Florida unit, and fathered a large family whose many descendants have contributed to making Florida the great state it is today.
In September 2014, genealogy.com decided to "archive" websites like this one, making them read-only. As I would then be unable to further update the information on this site, which is my own research, I decided to remove all of my genealogy photos and research from this site.
I have left the links below to my Rootsweb tree and the guestbook in the hopes that those links will remain functional. I hope to find a new website in the future to host my Rimes genealogy research, and I will try to post a link to that new page through the guestbook.
I have met many wonderful extended family members through this website that I wouldn't have gotten to know otherwise. Many of you unselfishly shared your information and stories with me, and helped all of us to know more about our family history. Please do stay in touch, I always enjoy hearing from you! You can reach me at <rimesfamily AT gmail.com> (of course substituting @ for AT), or through the guestbook link below.
