In Reply to: Looking for Sims In Pembina Manitoba. 1880 - 1922 by BRENDA SHERIFF of 1701

http://rootsweb.com/~abwcobit/Data/Papers/1934S/1934VancouverSunPage16.html - could this refer to the death of Francis Wesley Sims? According to the actual death record seen here:
http://search.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/sn-7A2220/query/Births,Marriages,Deaths/
he was 54 not 55 as listed on the obituary index - Emma Irene also died in Burnaby, BC, and Maggie Jane d. aged 90 in Quesnel - her obituary might be the one mentioned here:
www.abbotsford.net/msamuseum/obits/obits%20-%20S.doc

Possibly George's WWI records:

Possibly Robert's WWI records:

http://www.assembly.ab.ca/legislaturecentennial/pdf/membersBooklet.pdf - a mention of James Leland Sims here.


'Eiley Sims' may be the Eli Sims in Lisgar district of Manitoba in 1901 (on automatedgenealogy James Sims and family are in same area as Simms, and Francis is about as Frank)

By then he is married:
Eli Sims, Feb 3 1872, 29
Martha A, Jan 9 1875, 26
Clarence, July 15 1898, 2
Evert, Mar 23 1900, 1

There's an Eli Sims d. aged 87 in New Westminster, BC, in 1961, who might be him. And a Clarence Albert Sims who died aged 86 in 1985 who could be his son.

By 1906 they are:
Eli Sims, 32
Martha A, 30
Clarence A, 7
Evert N, 6
Wilfred W, 4
Mary A, 2

By 1911:
Eli Sims, 38
Martha, 36
Clarence, 12
Everet, 11
Wilfred, 9
Mary, 7
Bertha, 4
Lorne, 3

Here's Clarence's WWI records:
