Thank you for your posting on Tapley ancestry.

I've been attempting to learn a bit about Emma Tapley, wife of Jeremiah Sims and their children. I'm informed that Jeremiah was better known as "Buddy".
They, Jeremiah & Emma were married 9 December 1884 in Tallapoosa County, Alabama. Ref: Bk. 9, pg. 352
Bondsmen on the marriage license are Jeremiah Sims and Thomas P. Tapley.

The 1880 census for Duffers, Tallapoosa County, Alabama shows:
T. P. Tapley; age 44; b. AL.
M.P. Tapley; age 26; b. AL.
Emily Tapley; age 11; b. AL.
Elizabeth Tapley; age 9; b. AL.
J.G.W. Tapley (male); age 8; b. AL.
Nanny Tapley; age 3; b. AL.

All I've found in the past is that Emma Tapley was a daughter of Thomas P. Tapley and wife Mary P. Couch.

When and where Jeremiah & Emma died and are buried is unknown to me. Think they had at least six (6) children.
Names may have been:
Tyler - said to have had a son
William or Will
Ray - said to have had two (2) children
Lydia or Liddie; b. 1892 - m. Robert Welch
Rosia? - m. Cole

With your posting it does seem certain Emma/Emily is of your line. It is my sincere hope that you may be able to help with my long search.

Jeremiah Sims was born about 1861 in Chambers County, Alabama. His parents were Jeremiah Prather Sims and wife Martha Elizabeth Johnson. They are both buried in marked graves in the old Mt. Olive Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery located on the East side of Chambers County Road 53. The old cemetery in a short distance North of Shiloh, Chambers County, Alabama.

Please do respond. Thank You.
