Death Record and Cemetary Lookup Request for Tangipahoa Pairsh la PLEASE
Posted by: Debra LaMel (ID *****4944) Date: August 05, 2004 at 07:52:26
  of 166

WE are looking for William W (might be Wesley) Simmons and wife Amelia Ravencraft Simmons descendants or where they are buried at in Tangipahoa Parish La with the dates if anyone is willing to look this up and finds them could the include any other Simmmons also buried in Tangipahoa Parish La between 1880-1918

William was age 49 on the 1880 census Amelia was 22
by 1910 he is listed age 80 she is 49 also born MS

William died 8-16-1918 according to his wife Civil War Pension App also in Tangipahoa Pairsh La he was born in SC in about 1834-45. He was in Jasper Co MS by 1864 getting married a 2nd time to Nancy Jane Mitchum apparently they divorced and she remarried a William C Underwood
His first wife was named Elmyra Smith

WE had thought that William died but now we find this and all of his info on his pension papers match our William Wesley Simmons

William and Amelia had 7 children we know the names of only 3 John, Richard and Henry from the 1880 census
The 1900 was so bad we couldnt read any of the childrens names or ages or sexes
John is the only child still at home in 1910 age 33 and listed married once but no wife or children with him

Amelia list that she had 7 children but by 1900 and 1910 Census only 5 were still living

So if anyone could help us out we would greatly appreciate the help!
