COULTER, DRUMMOND, SIMS posted by Patty Drummond Fuchs on Sunday, October 8, 2000

I have been trying to research my family, and have found that my great-grat grandmother was Kesarah (Kasarh?) (COULTER) SIMS (born 1853 - died Oct. 15, 1921 in Bellaire, Ohio). The reason I am writing is that I think her father's and brother's names were Freeman Coulter. I have found a death certificate for Freeman Coulter (her brother I think) (born May 11, 1848 - died May 3 (or May 8th?) 1915 in Bellaire, Ohio. Kasirah (have seen her first name spelled about five different ways now) had at least two children, Cora Rebecca (Sims) DRUMMOND and Charles Norman Sims. (Cora being my great grandmother).
