Frank B. Sims

Frank B. Sims, farmer, Washington, Wilkes County, Georgia, son of Redding and Sarah (Spratlin) Sims, was born in Wilkes County, the youngest of a family of eleven children, Aug. 5, 1863. His grandfather, Jesse Spratlin, was a prominent farmer of Wilkes County.

Mr. Sims was educated at the common schools of the county, and has always remained on the farm with his parents, as a companion and protector. He is a consistent member of the Baptist Church, which he joined in 1886. To be a good farmer, a good citizen, and a consistent Christian fill the measure of his ambition.
