Don and Vera - butting in here. The below information would make more sense
to me as I found James O. in the 1920 census and he is listed as a widow. I
was trying to figure out how he could be a widow if Nora K. didn't die until
1934, but if the 1919 date is correct, then that would work out right.
I found the marriage date for James O. and Maude in the Izard Co. Marriages
1919-1925 - date was Dec. 23, 1920. I guess James had to find a wife pretty
soon as he was left with small children.
