  • Notes 
    • Husband Robert Mimms moved to Logan County, Kentucky. His mother, Elizabeth Woodson Mimms, executed a power or attorney on December 22, 1824, authorizing Robert "to demand of Henry G. Bibb, of Kentucky, a negro girl named Eady, and retain her for me and keep her as his own until I call for her."

      This Robert was the grandfather of Zerelda Mims who became the wife of Jesse James.
      In Kansas and Kentucky the conflict between Confederates and Abolitionists was characterized by cruel and bitter guerrilla warfare. Jesse James, his mother, who was Zerelda Cole James, and his brother, Frank, were zealous supporters of the Confederate cause. They were vociferous in their denunciations of neighbors who espoused the leadership of John Brown and others.

      Mary lived to quite an old age of 105 and lived 12 years past the end of the Civil War, into the era where Jesse and Frank James went from gorilla warriors to bank robbers.
