Mike Sims is my older brother. I remember when Mike would talk of Jimmy. I didn't know Jimmy, since he and Mike were about 8 yrs older than me. I do know they were close friends and I know Mike was deeply affected by Jimmy's death. Jimmy's been gone awhile now and you probably miss him. Just so you know, even though his life was short, he did touch others in ways you might not even know. Mine and Mike's older brother Steve died in 1995 and I understand what losing a sibling is like. Mike lives in California and works for NASA. Are your parents still alive? I'm sure Mike would like to know. BTW how did you know I was related to Mike?
Hazel Kuhlthau who married Don Kiser died in Bend OR a few years ago. She,Don and their kids have been great friends through the years. Don will be visiting us here in southern California soon. I knew Hazel's parents well and her cousins. I have a book published in 1882 that mentions Phillip Kuhlthau, Milltown and a few others who were related. If you email me your email or snail address I can scan it for you and send it to you.
As to the Selovers -- I was adopted by my Dad James V Selover--so I haven't done much original genealogy work on the Selover family -- but my Dad did a lot going back to the 1600s when the 1st of what would come to be called the Selover-Slover family came to New York and then to New Jersey. The Selovers are all related.
As to the Riou genealogy -- I have done extensive research on my Breton family going back to the 16th century. Many of the French that came with Michelin were from Brittany.
I have visited the village where my mother was born a number of times. My eldest son is visiting there this week.
