Unmarked. Middle initial possibly B.

Death year estimated.

m. 1) Sarah Ann Hughey 1830

From contributor Charles E. Sims:

I'm unsure if his middle initial was A or B.
It is my understanding that he is buried in an unmarked grave in the Paul P. Sims Family Cemetery located by Chambers County Road #121 and between the Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery and the Ebenezer United Methodist Church Cemetery.

I do show that he was 1st married to Sarah A. Thompson? in 1828 in Carroll Co., GA. and that she was born about 1810 in GA. and died 1865 probably in Chambers Co., AL. Ref: censuses of 1850 & 1860 of Chambers Co., AL.
