May I make a suggestion? Dates would be helpful in your queries. That way we can tell if you're looking for living relatives or ancestors. Since the names were a little less common I gave it a try.

Otis and Artie, with three dauthters, and Artie's mother Sarah Kirby are on the 1930 census Freestone Co, TX.

1920 census Limestone Co, TX:

Tabor, Otis E., h, 22, sgle, b TX, TX, TX
Beck, Emma, mth, 46, Div, b TX, AL, AL
" Jeff, bro, 16, b TX
" Etta, sis, 13, b TX
" Iona, sis, 6, b TX
Jones, Elizabeth, grandmthr, 72, Div, b AL, AL, AL

1910 census Limestone Co, TX:

Beck, John, h, 47 M(2) 7 yrs, b TX, TX, TX

Tabor, Will, step/son, 16, b TX
" Odis[sic], step/son, 13, b TX
Beck, Jennie G., dau, 12, b TX

Since middle initial on 1920 census was E, this looks like your Otis from the TX Dth Idx thru 1976:
