It shows his mother as being Emmie Simpson born in Saint Louis, MO around 1888. The birth certificate also shows that this was the seventh child. I believe the children by this marriage was E.L. Pannell Jr (Ben) and Edgar Lee Pannell Jr. (Bud), by a previous marriage of Emmie Simpson there was Norie, Mytle, Nettie, and Roxie. So, I am missing one of the children. I also believe that Simpson was an earlier married name for Emmie instead of a maiden name. I also know that Emmie Simpson died within 2 or 3 years of Ben's (E.L. Jr.) birth and that the father abandoned the children. I believe that the father died before 1969 in or around Bakersville, CA. I am a!
t such a brick wall, I hope one of you can help me.
