Cecil Simmons Class of 66

Saturday from Cecil Simmons' wife, Debbra Simmons, and this facebook message from Cecil's son (also named Cecil), 
Dear Mr. Campbell (Jim Campbell) as a classmate of my father's I would like to notify you that he passed away about 7:50 this morning.  I would be grateful if you can pass this on to other classmates.  Thank you.
Cecil passed away Saturday morning in San Antonio, Texas after a brief illness.  He will probably be buried in San Antonio, but Debbra didn't have any further details available yet.  Debbra is copied (, and maybe she will have a chance to share more details with us later.
Our most sincere condolences go out to Cecil's family, which includes Mildred Salter and Polly Spears locally.

Fort Mims - 27 -28 Aug

A lot of people in the Chumuckla area are descended from people on both sides of this battle. It would be fun to go to this and capture video interviews (in period) with re-enactors - for youtube. see FT MIMS website.
