THERE IS A BISHOP LAFAYETTE ELAM BURIED IN THE
MARTIN CEMETERY IN CHILDERS OK. NOWATA CO. FAG#
21063098 THAT COULD BE HER HUSBAND.
THEY SAY THAT HE MARRIED AGAIN AFTER IVA DIED..
I AM NOT FOR SURE YET, STILL LOOKING..
=================================================
Thanks to Connie Schofielf for her information..
=================================================
=================================================
I found Doc and Iva's marriage in Boone county Oct. 21, 1909 On the 1910 census it says
1910 Centralia Ward 1, Craig county, OK
Bishop C Elam 37 2nd marriage m 0 yrs
Iva N Elam 37 1st marriage 1 of 1 living
Kelley C Elam 7 AR AR AR

I always thought Kelley belonged to his 1st wife who he married 1902 and died 1908.
Question: Had Iva been married before? or am I correct in that Kelley was 1st wife's and the census-taker put it down wrong?

Kelly lied about his birth year to sign up for WW I draft --claimed birth year was 1898 instead of 1903
1920 says
1920 Centralia Ward 1, Craig county, OK
B L Elam 47
Grace Elam 29
Kelley Elam 21 should be 16-17
Hugh Morman 9 stepson this boy takes the Elam name by 1930
