Emory Paul Simmons was my grandfather. His date of birth is 5-16-1905 and died 5-17-1993. He is listed as being married to a Pearl Barnes born 7-3-1909 and died 5-4-1991.

Are you looking for the children? or census and since you do know when he died, Are you wanting death records? How is Myrtle Cadenhead involved? She is your grandmother or is Pearl Barnes ? Where did they live or do you know, if they stayed in Georgia? The reason I am asking is that I know Of a lady here in Waco, Texas and she was married to a Cadenhead but he died a couple of years ago. She had a daughter that went to school with one of my sisters. I did some research on her husband's side of the family but I don't remember a Myrtle Cadenhead in the family but I will go back and see if I can find my research. So you are wanting information on Emory Paul Simmons born 5-16-1905 and lived in LaGrange, Troup, Georgia Right? I will see what I can find. It would help if you can answer some of the questions. But let me know something. Nsueturney60
