Note: Slave of James Sims sold to John Huddleston. Lawrence M. Huddleston, Belle, WV, author of "The Huddlestons My Kin" had in his possession the original bill of sale from James Sims to John Huddleston for the slave "July Hulen" when June Settle Ciocca visited him at home in 1990. At the time she did not realize her relationship to James Sims. On 9 February 2002 in an e-mail in which she shared the photo of this bill of sale, she wrote: "Larry told me that James Sims had previously sold July Helen's mother to the Huddlestons and that both mother and daughter were so heart-broken, he agreed to sell them the child also. Larry had no children and my understanding is that his immense genealogical collection was donated to the archives in Charleston. I would assume that is where this document can now be found."
