WILLIAM HENRY SIMS AND
RACHEL CROMPTON-SIMS FAMILY
William Henry Sims was born on February 9th, 1856, in Tredegar, Monmouth, Wales.
Rachel Crompton was born November 20th, 1860, 1856 in Lancashire, England, to William Crompton and Hannah Hobson-Crompton, the fourth of twelve children. She immigrated to the US with her family at age six.
The two married and had twelve children (*per the research of Rachel's great-granddaughter Judy Proctor). We presume they lived in Utah or Wyoming. It is unknown what William did for a trade.
William Henry Sims died May 5th, 1917. Rachel Crompton-Sims died January 5th, 1935. The two both died in Almy, Wyoming and are buried in the Evanston, Wyoming City Cemetery.
