From Kathy Ledford

"I believe that Missouri might have died either giving birth to Ethel 'Ollie' or shortly after. (MY NOTE: we have since proven that Missouri did die betwen the birth of Ethel about 1902 and the 1910 census as John is listed as a widower at this time) Ethel was last child born in 1902. John put Ethel up for adoption at the age of 15 and the same people wanted Jake, but he didnt like the wife and went on his own. I also believe that John was married more then once. Some talk of a half brother named Jeff. . . .As I said Jakes death certificate staes Jobe and the information was given by his wife of 50 years, Doshie. They were married in Seminole Ok 4 may 1927. it also appears that John stayed pretty close to where ever Jake was. . . .It is also my understanding that Missouri is buried in Carden Bottom, Yell Co. Ar."
