Ethel was the daughter of Marion Pink Tillman and Anna Bell Varnado. Bala Chitto Simmons Family History lists 5 children but the 1930 census shows Emerson with Pink & Annie as their son-in-law, age 26 and widower. He married at age 20 according to that census. Can you verify that Ethel had 5 children by Emerson and when she actually died? I will share the Varnado ancestors if you want them.
