Otha was the fourth of seven children of Henry and Mildred (Asher) Back.

He first married Matilda Wilson in 1873 in Cass Co., MO. They have one child. They divorce. Matilda remarries and takes the child with her.

Otha then married Sarah Hoots Carr (a widow) in 1878. This marriage does not last.

Circa 1888 in Kansas he marries Eliza Jane Estella Mead. They migrate to Arizona circa 1893. To this union are born six children (Alfred, William, Lizzie, Alice, Marcus, and Lora).

The funeral notice for Otha does not indicate the cemetery in Flagstaff where he was buried.

Eliza Jane, unable to care for the younger children, places them for adoption after the death of Otha. Only Lora is identified after being adopted out. Alfred and Cuter work as cowmen to support themselves.
