a. Note:   George R. Penick Jr. ("The Penick Papers" compiled in 1978-1980) listed him as Charles Fulton Simms in his compilation. He wrote "Birth & Marriage dates from Simms Family Bible. All of the handwritten Bible entries spell the name Sims". He does not mention who owns the bible. Scanned images of the bible pages would be helpful for persons wanting to prove their relationship for DAR, etc. purposes.
