After the loss of his first wife he frequently hitched up team to wagon and drove the 30 miles or so to Willow Springs where Nellie Yoakum Shryock and Myrtle Yoakum Norris, two of his daughters, lived with their families.
In the course of the next year, on these visits to Willow Springs, Ike met a widow named Martha Alice Dewitt. Ike and Martha Dewitt were married on Monday, October 30th of 1922, in Willow Springs.
They lived on the Yoakum farm at White Rock. The marriage would last another 9 years before Ike died on December 8th of 1931.
