    I am Fannie Lee Simmons Foil’s daughter. I am thinking that you must be one of Aunt Ethel’s granddaughters. I would love to hear from you, and I am enjoying your Evermore website. I wonder if I could persuade you to let me have the color picture of my mother that is labeled “Fannie Lee “Cooter” Simmons.” I do not have that particular picture. Please let me hear from you; I will be glad to pay for the picture, postage, etc.

      My grandmother Gladys Windsor is decended from Gladys Pendleton from Nevada ” Nettie” Nager from Annie Clark from Andrew Jackson Clark and Mary F, from censuses, stories and another publication. –


      Is it Nager or Renager, is this the same family?

    Melissa, there doesn’t appear to be any relationship in your family and these Ranagers over here in the U.S. I have censuses that track the Ranagers from 1830 on, John Ranager having arrived through Mobile, Alabama apparently in 1821, and this family was always in Mississippi and Alabama.

    There are no Simms in the family tree. The earliest records we have of the family are from about 1840 and they were Simmons.
