Alexander Sim settled the family farm in the 1830s. He was a native of Morayshire Scotland, born in 1790. Alexander married Anne Milne and came to Nova Scotia in 1820. Their 3rd child was born on the ship. Alexander died in 1853 in Centre Gore. He and Anne had 12 children. The farm went to his 5th son, Robert Milne Sim, born in 1830.
Robert married Esther Dewell (Dowell), daughter of John and Anne (Whittier) Dewell. They had 7 children, one of whom (Iím assuming) is the Lorenzo you speak of. My grandmother has contact information for him, and told me he was here a couple of years ago.
When Robert died in 1890, the farm went to his youngest son, Isaac Creighton Sim, born in 1867 (Confederation year).
Creighton married Annie Hall Walker, the daughter of James and Sarah (Mason) Walker. They had 3 children, Russell, Aubrey, and Gwendolyn. Creighton died in 1950, and the farm passed to his son Russell Creighton Sim, my grandfather. He passed away in 1971 or 72. His grandson Russ now lives there with his partner and 2 children.
So, Robert Sim was my great-great grandfather. Go figure.
feel free to contact me... i'd love to have more information.
