I am looking for descendants of Elias Spruce & Elizabeth Sims or Matthew Spruce & Mary Sims. Elizabeth and Mary were sisters and my first cousins, four times removed. Their father, James William Sims, was the brother of my third great-grandmother, Sarah Jane Sims. This is the information I have so far on both Elizabeth and Mary's families:

Elizabeth "Lizzie" Sims, 1868 - 9/1903, married Elias Spruce, 3/1865 - 12/1940, on April 1887 in Lexington, Lafayette County, MO. Elias was the son of Samuel Spruce, 7/1827 - 11/1907, and Emma Walton, born unknown - 12/13/1877.

Elizabeth and Elias had the following children:
1) Mollie married ? Schwab
2) Bess
3) Charlotte
4) Emma
5) Margaret
6) Anna
7) Bud
8) Helen

Mary Sims, born about 1870 & died between 4/1892 and 6/1/1900, married Matthew Spruce, 6/1866 - aft. 4/22/1910, on June 28, 1889 in Lafayette County, MO. Matthew was the son of Seth Spruce, born 5/1839 and died between 6/1/1900 and 4/21/1910, and Sarah Wilkinson, 5/1843 - aft. 4/22/1910.

Mary and Matthew had the following children:
1) Mamie, 8/1890 - aft. 4/22/1910
2) Martha, 4/1892 - aft. 4/22/1910

If anyone is a descendant from one of these families, please e-mail me directly or post a reply message to this board.
