NOTE:I also found this family on the 1920 census in Precinct #3 in Bowie County, TX; and on the 1930 census in Archer County, TX.I found James W. Dean, with a second wife) living with one of his sons in Oklahoma in 1920.
Martha Wilcox, b. ca. 1844/45 in Alabama, is living with James Obie and Ethel Dean on the 1910 and 1920 census, and is listed as mother-in-law.The 1910 census shows James O. and Ethel had been married for 3 years, so they probably were married in Bowie County, Texas.
