John Hampton Sims

This photograph is thought to be of John Hampton Sims, younger son of William and Matoaka Sims. The image seems to show young John seated in the bay window of the front parlor of his home (now the Sims-Mitchell House).

John was born around 1870. Numerous records state that he was an attorney, and that he and his wife Lydia lived in Washington, D. C. He died on or about August 6, 1935.
