On James Oscar Marchant b. 24 Jan 1882, the 1930 Census sort
of clears some of the air. He was first married at age 21, according
to the Census, and I have him married to Nora Kansas Davidson 15 Apr
1903, that will work. Maude is listed as his wife in 1930 Census and
it says she was married at 30 years of age and she is at census time
39. That all seems to work for me. Now the three small children by
Maude, second wife, is James Oscar 4 2/12, Veda and Vera are both 2 and 2/12.
