    Notes 


    • (1) Robert R. Johns' pedigree, http://worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com:

      All of the dates, relationships, and information regarding this family group were obtained from "Glenn and Kin" 1994 ed. J. M. Christopher. The following from page 335:

      In addition to his land in Hanover Co. given to him by his father Matthew II, Matthew III purchased two tracts of land in Cumberland Co., one in 1767, 200 acs. on branches of Willis' River [DB 4-196] while he was still a resident of Hanover Co. and another of 400 acs. on branches of Rockey Run of Willis' River on 12 October 1772 as Matthew Sims of Cumberland Co., [DB-5-151]. Except for land allotted to Mary as her dower, a part of these tracts were disposed of by their eldest son Bernard Sims who inherited land under the law of primogeniture which was in effect in Virginia until 1786. Bernard Sims sold the 200 acre tract to his brother in law Jesse Johns in 1784, and 2 acres to Fleming Cayce in 1791. He apparently lived on the balance of the 400 acre tract.
