Looking for William Garner of Alabama

My grandfather was William Emanual Garner, born in 1885 and he married a Cherokee named Easter Epsy McNeal/McNeil or Harden/Hardin (there is some confusion in the family about her last name). She was from North Carolina and I have not been able to track down any information on her. I did find my grandfather in 1900, 1910 & 1920 census; but nothing before or after. I understand the after because Easter Epsy Garner died in 1925 and he died in 1926; so, there would not be a further listing on him. I have tried to track down his children, to no awail. My father was raised as an orphan by Israel John William Garner and I found him and his wife, Minnie on the 1910 census. It is my understanding that Israel and Minnie raised my Father, William and his 3 brothers, Travis, Wilborn and Roy Lee until they married or moved out on their own. My Father married my Mother in 1940 and they lived with Israel and Minnie; however I can't find them on any cenuse after 1920. I would love to find out about my Father's childhood and his genealogy. Thanks for your help. Linda Garner Davenport (mrsrailbox4@aol.com)
