My gg-uncle G B Clark married a young "twice widowed" Simeranus "Simmie" McAnally in 1867 in Rankin Co, MS.Many variation of her given name online.
Rankin County marriage records luckily has on file all tree of Semmie's marriages.

I am in need of Mississippi McAnally researchers to let me know who Semmie's parents and possible siblings were.
I have searched online and found solid and sketchy info telling me that Semmie was probably orphaned in early teenage years and.
A stretch maybe but I think that I have found Semmie living in household of a James Baker in Leake County 1850. Also enumerated 1860 as a young McDaniel (in error as McDonald?) widow, living with the same James Baker, 1860 in Rankin County, MS. Semmie has two children with her on the 1860 Census,, William age 5 and Georgiana age 3. Georgiana later married Ben F Dyes of Rankin County, later to Sabine Parish, LA.

Also on the 1850 Leake County a few households away from the Baker family is another young female "M McAnaly" age 14 enumerated living with a young female Elmira Simpson 20 y/o,
Does anyone know the parents of Semmie McAnally and any siblings she might have had?
Semmie appears to possibly be a Mississippi McAnally that was probably orphaned at a young age, pre 1850. A McAnally that might have fallen through the cracks, undetected, almost unaccounted for.
