The Lynching of Reuben Sims

Mr. Reuben Sims is the only documented lynching victim in Baldwin County, Alabama between 1877 to 1950.

Since he was the “only one” I wanted to try to find out a little more about the circumstances surrounding his lynching. Mr. Reuben Sims’ lynching made it in to newspapers across the country.

Below are some articles I found relating to Mr. Reuben Sims’ murder.

Oral History: A collection of family stories told by a member of the family or by a close family friend. You can transcribe an oral history onto paper, or video or tape-record it. Oral histories often yield stories and information you won’t find written in records. (Definition from familytreemagazine.com)
