Josephine was the daughter of Isaac Hall Simms (1871-1917) & Mary Ellen "Ella" Petty who died in childbirth in 1916. Josephine had at least four siblings including Walter, Nellie, Ruth Virginia and Bascomb. It is believed that following the death of their parents the names of these children were changed to Petty...being the maiden name of their mother. About 1919 Josephine married her first cousin, George W. Simms, son of Steve and Rosie (Lawrence) Simms. Isaac Hall Simms and Stephen Albert Simms were the sons of John Louis Simms and Nancy Mayes.
