Re: W. Sanders Russell and Susan Melinda Simmons

In Reply to: W. Sanders Russell and Susan Melinda Simmons by Nancy Kuehl of 284

Nancy, Susan Melinda Simmons, was my GG Aunt. Her father was Francis Marion "Frank" Simmons, my GG Grandfather. Susan's sister, Mary was my Great Grandmother. Although I see that Susan's first husband was W. Sanders Russell, I have very little information on him. I see that they were married in Nachitoches Parrish, LA, 11 Dec 1882, that's where the Simmons family lived (Many, LA). I also see that the period between 1882 and 1900, when she remarried J.R. McKinney, is undocumented. She does show up in the 1900 Census living with her father, Frank Simmons, listed as single with no children. My G Grandmother Mary Whitton, and her son, my Grandfather Whitton , are also living with Frank Simmons. Mary is I think, recently widowed. Maybe there's some connection between my Great Grandfather's death, and W. Sanders Russell death. Both apparantly died prior to 1900, and I've been unable to discover how my G Grandfather died. You might already know Susan Melinda is buried in the Shiloh Cemetery along with her father and several other Simmons family members. If I can be of any help, let me know. Maybe if you figure out your uncle, I can figure out what happened to my G Grandfather. His name is George Robert Whitton, b. 1870 d. before 1900.
