Mims of South Carolina/Cheraw/Darlington/Lynches Creek

Interested in exchanging information regarding the following interconnected families who settled the area of Lynches Creek in Darlington SC originally the Cheraws area.

Dubose, Mims, Windham, Hurst, Dews, Reynolds

I am particullarly interested in the families who were in the area in 1755.  I am attempting to find the parents of Elizabeth Mims who married Andrew Dubose in 1775. She was born in c1755 according to marriage record in the SC Archives from the Pugh diary.   I feel that names of their children and grandchildren could be key in determining if Richard Mims is indeed her father.

I am interested in obtaining more information on the heritage of Mims Family. My grandfather William Mims and his brother Monroe Mims migrated to New York in the 50's. I remember being told stories about their families in Aiken, SC but I do not have any concrete information. Please advise.

My family is from SC and we have the names of Dubose and Mims. A graveyard is in Goose Creek  South Carolina with these names dating back to I think 1700. It was once a plantation of their's granted to them by the king of England . The palntation was lost during the civil war I think. The graveyard can not be destroyed, it's still part of the familys. I believe the plantation grew tobacco. It is still a working tobacco farm. From what I am told there were seven brothers(Mims) that came here, I don't know  when ,but my sister knows more about this than I do. Let me know and I,ll get more info.

Regards ,

I am a descendant of Elizabeth Mims and Andrew Dubose.  I have been struggling to find out her parents.

If you have discovered who they are...PLEASE share with me.   

I, along with my Uncle and a few others have had various DNA testing done and I am willing to share all of our results.

I really don't know other than my great grandmothers name was Mims and her father was one of 17 children. Shuler ,Threatt , Grooms and Dubose is also know. My sister is more versed in this . I told her about this site ,I'll call her again  to let her know. Also one of my great grandmothers siblings descendants wrote a book and is in the U of South Carolina. Don't know the title . Elizabeth Mims is also one in our family

I was wonderfully surprised to receive your gracious reponse to my information query regarding the Mims family in South Carolina . I would be most grateful  and in your debt, for any and all information that you might be so kind as to provide concerning the families Dubose, Mims, Windham, Hurst or Kilpatrick   in South Carolina. My best recollection is that Goose Creek is among the many places in which my ancestors may have resided and flourished.  A great number of offspring sought the greener pastures of newly opening lands in Georgia during the lotteries, as -well-as the former Indian territories of Northwest Florida"s panhandle.  A great migration of South Carolinian's travellers from the areas of Darlington, Kershaw and surrounding counties travelled enmass to settle these newly opening lands following the Native American removal and the tragic Trail of Tears (in which a number of my native American families were included).  Many of those Cherokee kinsmen were able to pass as white or "mulatto" and were thus saved that terrible plight by denying their own heritage to prevent seperation of families.  How heartbreaking to be force the choice of denying your heritage for freedom!   

Gratefully yours,

so sorry for the delay, it was a nice suprise. My sister is not computer literate,so this is a go between for now. My sisters daughter is a foresics scientist and they have a new swab to test for what percentage in your DNA is. We had suspected Native American, but since the family has been here for so long things seem to fade with history. As it turns out it's 3% for my sister,I didn't take the test we don't live in the same town. My grandmother's name is Missouri Mims. On the grave makers out at the plantation  have the name of Mims and Dubose and I think Flatman. Anyway I'll get my neice's e-mail so that they can jump in on this. They have more info,my sister was smart enough to write things down before my mother passed away at the age of 90

Hi! My names is Mel and I am researching Mims in Cheraw district/Darlington area that later moved to Autagua County, Alabama. I have gathered Mims info back to 1674 with Thomas Mims in VA who was in England before that. I believe I am related to the same Mims family you both are discussing. I am also interested in the Indian heritage you have discussed. My grandmother Ora Mae (maiden name Mims) spoke of a Great-great grandfather who was an Indian. There was a picture of a male Indian that my grandmother said was this man that she said used to hang on the wall in someone's house. We had always assumed that this Indian person came from Alabama, but in my research I have not been able to find any Indian relation in Alabama - although I just may not have discovered it yet. I am also interested in the family centery that you discussed. I know that Richard Mims fought in the American Revolution under Capt. Elias DuBose in the St David's Parish Volunteer Company.

 I am looking for the burial locations of Richard and Elizabeth Andrews? Mims both died sometime after 1807. My mom and I are planning on making a geneaology trip to South Carolina the week of September 19-23. We are planning on checking out sone documents that I need first hand eyes on for verification. Is there anyway I could get information about the Mims-DuBose cemetery? I would also be interested in any information you have on the Mims family. What information are you seeking?

I was interested in your MIMS post.  I am researching my husband's family.  Two sisters Olivia and Rebecca Mims of Mims Plantation at Goose Creek, SC daughters of James MIMS and Rosa unknown married Samuel Daniel Shuler of Orangeburg County SC and moved around 1850 to Liberty County Florida.  The eldest sister Olivia died early on and he married Rebecca at a young age and she is the mother of the children.  There is a large family of Shuler descendents in Liberty County.  Rebecca had a brother James MIMS who moves about the same time to Decatur County Georgia, about 50 miles or so from Liberty County.  I do not have much other information about him other than an old bible record.  He married Rumph I believe also from SC.  James, his father and Rosa had 6 children that I know of (if I have them down correctly) Thomas (chllenged), James, Joseph (challenged), Olivia b 1801-3, Rebecca b. 1810, and Elizabeth b. abt 1810 (challenged) married Reuben Chason and moved to Liberty County FL also.  James Mims the elder, his father as I have it was married to an Avis unknown was born about 1735 in most likely Virginia.  I have James and Avis Mims as parents of three sons:  James, Joseph and William.  I have the father of James Mims husband of Avis as James Mims b before 1716 in New Kent Co, VA wife unknown.  I do not have any other children listed here but James Mims husband of Avis.  This James Mims, b before 1716 wife unkn, I have as son of Thomas Mims II and wife Mellyan Martin (or Amelia Mellayan).  This Thomas Mims II has a son Thomas III who has ten children and a son named James among them.  I am interested in hearing of your line in more detail.  I have a lot of questions about the research that I do have and have a listening ear.
