William C. SIMMS (1828- atf 1880) CSA service

I am researching ancestral ties to the US Civil War, and need help with William C, SIMMS, who resided in Fort Bend county, TEXAS and is listed in 1860 US CENSUS.

Would appreciate help to determine if he served and what unit he was associated with. Some Ancestry.com postings reference a Wm. C SIMS in MISSOURI. With the 1860 US CENSUS and others, it appears he was a life long resident of Fort Bend County, TEXAS.
Would appreciate help possibly from someone in the SCV Camp for Fort Bend that could help with this research.
