Feb. 14, 1912 Egypt Chickasaw County Mississippi, USA
He was born in Tennessee, USA. He is the son of Daniel Simril and Rachel Hunter. Eli Married Amanda Adeline Wilson on 15 Nov 1868. They had the following children: Caney Simril, Jefferson Simril, Reece Simril Sr., and William Marion Simril.
The Simril family listings shows Eli Daniel Simril and Eli Douglas Daniel Simril. We show Eli Daniel Simril to be the only name among our records: born March 7, 1833; death FEb 14, 1912. Regardless, the place of burial is not Mount Gilead Cemetery, White County, Tennessee but rather Gunntown Cemetery, Chicksaw County, Mississippi. If you check the Gunntown Cemetery you will find a photo of his tombstone. The information posted is most helpful. After being out of touch for a number of years it is amazing how much more information is now available. Many thanks. Bill This is his email address: Williamcrews5@gmail.com
