They are buried in Oakwood in Denison.

I believe this couple may be the parents of Polly Langhorne Sims (b 1852, Virginia, d 1923), buried Blewett Cemetery, Richardson. Polly was the wife of William Francis Albert Smith (1849-1919), also buried in Blewett Cemetery.

Family lore indicates that Polly was born in Richmond, Virginia, that her father (or grandfather) was a doctor, and they lived on Morton Street.

Family notes indicate that Polly was the daughter of Parker Sims and Louise Sims.

I cannot locate a Parker Sims in Grayson Co. Direction is appreciated.

Thank you, Beth
