Wondering if you could help me with any information about John Sims and John D. Sims.

I've seen information that Martin Sims (1799-1882) and wife Catherine Jayne (1799-1829) had a son named John Sims who was born about 1823 in Lee County, Virginia. That is all I've got on that John Sims.

John D. Sims; born about 1860 in Lee County, Virginia to William P. Sims (1831-1914) and wife Hannah Catherine Larmer (c.1839-1918). That is all I've got on this John D. Sims.
Note: William P. Sims and wife Hannah Catherine Larmer are reported to have married 21 Jan, 1858 in Lee County, Virginia and both are reported to be buried in Ravenwood, Nodaway County, Missouri.

I'm a very long time researcher of Sims and have strong evidence supporting a family connection to these Sims of Lee County, Virginia. This Sims family of Lee County, Virginia goes back to James Sims (c. 1762-c.1820's) and wife Elizabeth Sowder(s). Research supports that James Sims was born in Halifax County, Virginia and taken by his parents, William & Loraner Sims, to Laurens County, South Carolina.
They, William & Loraner Sims, are my well documented and proven gggg grandparents. They lived out their lives in Laurens County, South Carolina. A son, Clayborn Sims, was appointed administrator of the estate of William Sims.
Clayborn Sims is also well documented as having been born in Halifax County, Virginia and having been taken by his parents, William & Loraner Sims, to Laurens County, South Carolina where Clayborn Sims later served in the South Carolina Militia during the Revolutionary War. That was after the reduction of Charleston. His service records are on file in the Archives at Columbia, South Carolina. Clayborn Sims is my proven ggg grandfather.
Sorry for going on and on but just wanted you to have some insight into why my interest in the Sims of Lee County, Virginia.

Thank you for any help.
