The following photos are of Newton Gilbert Sims' third family with Arizona Schoolcraft.

We did not know of this family until I found Fred Sims' step-daughter Christine in Parkersburg, WV with the help of another cousin.

Newton was our great-grandfather and he was married three times. Our great-grandmother, Ruth Elizabeth Jane White was his second wife.

His first wife was Margaret Jane Hall from Gilmer County, WV. With her he had a daughter Mary Susan Sims.

I will add photos of her and her children soon.

Thanks to Christine and Sheila King Hall for the photos!

(New cousins)

Fred and Icie would be our Grandmother Bernice Sims Horner's, half-brother and sister. That would make them our mother's uncle & aunt. Our great-uncle and great-aunt.

Their children would be our mother's 1st cousins. At this time I'm pretty sure that Bernice had no knowledge of them nor of her other half sister Mary Susan Sims from Newton's first marriage.

The Newton Sims and Margaret Jane Hall Family

The following are pictures of The Newton Gilbert Sims' first family with Margaret Jane Hall. They only had 1 daughter, Mary Susan Sims. Mary would marry a Joseph L. Conley and they had many children. Take a look at some of these photos and I think you will be able to see the family resemblence to our mother Thelma. Mary Susan Sims Conley was Mom's aunt.
