Notes
a. Note:   Sims' second wife, Mary Jane Johnson, was a sister to John and William Johnson who married George's half sisters Elizabeth and Nancy Ann Sims. This is not correct as Mary J. Johnson was born between 1840-1843 which was long as the death of William Sr. who died in 1805 and his wife Amy Nelson Johnson who died in 1837). Mary Jane was not a daughter/niece of these brothers since John's daughter Mary b. 1814 md. John Kincaid bef. 1835 and William's daughter Mary b. 1820 md. David Alexander Miller 1839. This leaves the possibility of her being a granddaughter/grandniece of John and/or William Jr. John's son Harrison Johnson had a daughter Mary b. ca. 1842 and William's son Joseph Nelson Johnson had a daughter Mary A. b. ca. 1841. Marriages have been found for both of these girls and they are listed with their families in 1860. This leaves Mary J. Johnson age 18 in 1860 found in the household of Elizabeth McVey.
