- I am trying to locate the first wife of a Calvin Henry Simmons. He
was born in Georgia in 1830. I believe he married a woman named Anna
Martha (maiden name unknown) in 1860 and they had two
daughters...Frances Alva and Anna Martha. She passed away in 1866,
and he remarried in 1867 to Lavonia Elizabeth Davis. I can't find
anything on his first wife because I am not sure of her maiden name.
I am going to guess that she was from the same area of Georgia he
was...Cave Spring, Floyd, Georgia. A possible birthdate for Anna is 8
May 1841. Anyone also searching this line? I found the two daughters
on the 1880 census with Calvin and Lavonia, but the 1860 census has
Calvin still living at home and I can't find him on the 1870 census.
