I found marriages for Florida 1898, Myrtle 1901 and Alice 1901. Alice evidently didn't stay married or he died because she is in Oklahoma with her sons in 1910 and listed as Wd again.
You'll find Alice, F.M. and 1st wife Mattie, George and Ada. No listing for Elmer but there is a photo of them on her page. Ada is in Oowala cemetery as her mother. Fred and George are in Woodlawn in Claremore.
