Joe was the 2nd husband of my grand-aunt (and cousin), Fairy Pamelia/Evangeline WALKER.

In 1930, Joe and Fairy were enumerated in the Quay County, New Mexico, Census.

That census shows that Joe was first married at age 23. We know he didn't marry Aunt Fairy until after 1920. So, we are now searching for the identity of his first wife.

The last siting of Joe that I know about (from my mother) was when Joe and Fairy moved to Shawnee, Pottawatomia County, Oklahoma, ca 1936.

Fairy E. LANE was enumerated as a Widow in the 1940 Census (Franklin County, Kansas). In a 1976 letter to a cousin, Aunt Fairy wrote that her husband, Capt. J. H. LANE, died a few years after they moved to Oklahoma following the depression. After his death, Aunt fairy moved back to Kansas. Therefore, it's believed that Uncle Joe LANE died 1936-1940 somewhere in Oklahoma.

For many years, we believed Uncle Joe served in the military, based on Aunt Fairy referring to him as "Capt. J. H. Lane". However, the 1930 Quay Co., NM Census shows that he was NOT a Veteran. Investigation is being done to determine what (if any) his military service entailed . . . . . or if that was a nickname. Unfortunately, no Living Relatives have been able to clear up this mystery.
