Does anyone have infromation on any of my uncles.
Everette E. Simmons, b. November 15, 1881; d. bef. 1932.
He attended Center Point School in Attala Co, MS as a fifteen year old but was not in the 1900 census records living with his father. His parents were James Madison Simmons and Nancy J. Newby. Either his or his brother Newbie’s birth dates are incorrect by a few months.
Jefferson Newby (Newbie) Simmons, b. April 01, 1882; d. May 14, 1921, TX.
He also attended Center Point School as a fourteen year old and still lived with his father in 1900 according to the census. He attended school four months in 1900 and worked as a labor. I could not find him in the 1910 or 1920 Texas censuses.
James Robert (Jim Bob) Simmons, b. November 12, 1884, GA.
Jim Bob also attended the school and was in the 1900 census and like his brother Newbie he attended school for four months and worked as a labor for eight months. Either Everette or James Robert left Mississippi and traveled to California prior to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The family believes that he died in the earthquake because they never heard from him again. The list, which is by no means complete, of those who perished in the earthquake includes a James A. Simmie/ Simminnie but no Everette Simmons.
