Sims, Nettie was actually the daughter of William Jordan Sims and Mary Bell Biggs Sims, born July 9, 1900, and died  in 1909.

I noticed you also listed the Mankin family. My Aunt Mattie (Sims) married  Ellis Mankin, the son of Preacher Mankin on March 14, 1920, and he died on Oct. 9, 1920 after he was killed by a person stealing his team of horses with a wagon.

 

Two names that I know of that are missing are part of the Sims family.  I have also visited there, as my grandfather is a Sims buried there with a broken headstone. He is right beside Nettie Sims. His name was Floyd General Sims, born Aug. 4, 1893, and died Feb. 11,1925.  His first wife is also buried beside him with no marker. Her name was Willa May Sims, born Aug. 25, 1898, and died March 20, 1918.

 

You also mentioned that one of the headstones might be Aria Sims. Aria Sims died  May 31, 1895.

My maiden name is Sims, and I have visited the Buffalo Cemetery, and have recently started working again on the family history.  The Biggs family is also part of my family, as my great-grandmother was a Biggs. The same goes with the Smith family. When great-grandmother Biggs married a Sims, then a Smith after the death of her husband.

 

I was amazed at how many of the family group are buried there.  Mary B. Biggs Sims Smith is buried in Iowa Park, Texas, and she died on November 10, 1944. She was born December 12, 1875. I have a copy of a little book that had a lot of the Sims families as well as the Biggs families listed. My cousin has the original, as her grandmother had the book. Her grandmother was Mattie Louis Sims Mankin, born on Sept. 14, 1897, and she died on May 6, 1981. She is also buried in Iowa Park, Texas.

Hi Renee,

Lydia Cates. That's my husband's great-grandmother. I have an approximate birth date for W.F. (William Franklin) Cates (1829) and the death date (30 Sep 1896), but didn't add it, since it isn't on his tombstone.

 

Below are additional people buried in Buffalo Cemetery without headstones or missing headstones.

 

Cox, Mary "Catherine" (McVey) born Sept 1877 died Feb 1919 Unmarked grave next to Harmon Hawkins: info from daughter.

 

Cox, Robert Lee born April 1878 died February 1919 Unmarked grave next to Harmon Hawkins; info from daughter.

 

Rice, Dicie (Cates) born 25 April 1877 died 20 October 1952 Unmarked grave; death certificate; her grave just S of James Trafton Rice grave.

 

Rice, James Trafton born 3 January 1861 died 11 January 1945 Unmarked grave; death certificate; first grave S of George W. Rose.

I have two unmarked ones buried in Buffalo Cemetery.
 
Ward, William Caroll b. June 24, 1841 d. Feb 25, 1920
 
Cates, Emmett b. Aug 29, 1890 d. 1891 of pneumonia.  The last time our grandmother was there she found the little rock where William Robert Joseph Iley Cates had carved his name.  She stood the rock by his father's grave, William Robert Joseph Iley Cates.

McElroy, Mary Terry

I looked at your 2001 records of the Buffalo Cemetery at Boles, Arkansas this morning.  This probably won't help anyone else, but my mother visited there in August 1933 and found the headstone of our ancestor, Mary Terry there.  She was born November 29, 1839 and died April 15, 1918.  She was the wife of William J. McElroy who is already in your listing.  Her headstone has been removed, so her grave is probably unidentified now.
