Sim Family of Scotland History
Allen Kennedy Sim
(This is all I have been able to find for Allen Sim. Who can help here?)
Allen K. Sim was born November 14, 1888 in Scotland. He came to the United States with his parents James (#3) Sim and Mary Kennedy, in 1890. He is not listed as living with them in Bay City during the 1890s.
Everything that I have been able to find puts Allen in Lorain, Ohio. Lorain is on the shore of Lake Erie in northern Ohio.
In 1917, he registered for the draft in Lorain, Ohio. This record shows he was working for J. F. Regan, was single, and his height was 5' 1". For some reason he signed his name, A.K.E.A. Sim.
On August 3, 1918, he joined the National Army. He listed his address as 10 Erie Ave., Lorain, Ohio. He was assigned to Company B, 59th Ammunition Train. He was discharged as a private on December 26, 1918. He only served a little over five months.
In 1920, he was listed as a border at 215 Sixth St., Lorain, Ohio, and was working as a salesman at a grocery store.
Allen died April 21, 1975, in Lorain, Ohio and is probably buried there. His last known address was 44052 Lorain, Lorain, Ohio.
