Yes, after looking at the 1930 census more closely, I see that EH says he is a widower.
And I found that EH, Jr. was the men's golf champion at the Moon Brook County Club in Jamestown, NY in 1933, 34, 35, 37 and 38. So the golf talent must have been handed down!
Of course, we have what we in Texas call the "snowbirds" who go to the Brownsville area in the winters to get away from the cold climate up north, but would this be a reason for EH to go there? He was quite elderly by then. It's a puzzle.
Have you posted your query on the Cameron County, TX forum? Also try to contact the Cameron Co. Genealogical Society - most times there is someone willing to help.
