Again found Otto in 1918 Military WWl registration card, January, 23, 1920 census in Mountain Township, Van Buren Arkansas census living with wife Effie M. Dale/Harris, sons William O and Arthur Lee. Also found divorce records of 1923 and 1925 where Effie filed for divorce and their wedding date was listed also.
Also have copies of marriage license of Otto and second wife Sarina "Rena" Elizabeth Dilday/Bishop/Harris and Otto's death certificate August 24 1934 and Obituary from Muskogee Daily Phoenix Newspaper dated Aug 25 1934.
According to his military record, the 1900 census and other records, Augusta was actually born August 14, 1883. The dates on his headstone are incorrect.
Uncle Jr was named after his father, Augusta Otto Harris SR. However, my grandmother changed the last letter, "A" to the letters "US" therefore Uncle Jr's name was actually Augustus Otto Harris Jr
