Can you help find my great grandparents?

I am looking for an Ed and Emma Phillips (Maharray). They had 1 daughter, my grandmother, Theresa Christine. She was born in 1920. I believe Ed and Emma were from Mississippi. They lived in Osceola, AR at some point.  They divorced and Ed was married several times with several children. I am not having any luck because no one is sure of birth dates.  I believe Ed died in 1958 and Emma died in 1949. Any assistance would be much appreciated. I would love to be able to help my dad find out where he is from.
