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

      The following from "Glenn and Kin" 1994 ed. auth. J. M. Christopher, page 331:

      Matthew Sims II and his wife Jemima Glenn Sims resided in Hanover Co. VA until after the revolution, [abt 1784], when they, with several of their sons and daughters and their families, moved to SC. Jemima and Matthew settled in Newberry Co. where they lived on Broad and Tyger Rivers, at the junction of the two rivers, and near their kin, Jemima's brothers and sisters and their families, the Glenns and Hopkins. By this time Matthew Sims II was refered to as Matthew Sims Sr. since his father had died many years before in VA.

      Matthew II died in Newberry Co. between 14 April 1795, when he signed his will, and 18 May 1795, when appraisers were appointed to appraise his personal property. [Box 361 pkg. 2, est. 188 Newberry County Probate Records. The inventory included 27 Negroes valued at 925 pnds, livestock, furniture, and farm equipment etc., total value 1095-12-10 pnds.]
