In Reply to: SOLON J. KELTNER by Judie Schatz of 625

A very elusive person. It could be Jasper. I haven't found any other particulars that match the MO Keltner's. I wonder where the name Solon comes from?

Have you found him in 1920? I can't find him on that census. I found Pricie in TX.

1920 TX Cooke Justice Prec 8 Dist 48
Keltner, P. Head FW D KY KY KY House Keeping Private Home
Hicks (index says Hinks), Arnold son 22 S TX KY KY
, Jess son 20 S TX KY KY
, Wesley son 18 S TX KY KY
Keltner, Buna dau 14 S TX KY KY
Note the marital status as divorced.

WWI Draft Reg lists Jess Lewis Hicks b. Oct 8, 1897 nearest relative Mrs. Pricie Keltner. Registered in Cooke Co., TX.

1930 OK, Comanche, Lawton, Dist 24
Pruitt, Ike Head 69 TX, KY, TN none
, Lizzie wife age is a blob TN TN TN none
Byars, Ervin lodger 71 S AL AL AL none
Keltner, Solon laborer, crossed out and lodger written above it 77 WD MO PA PA Laborer
, Marguarett V. daughter, crossed out and lodger written above it, 14 S OK MO TX

I can't find him, or Marguarett, in 1920. Did he have a different wife or is this a daughter of Pricie? Since she wasn't with Pricie in 1920, I think there may have been a new wife. So if this is Jasper, then we would have Victory, Mary, Pricie, and one unknown. Busy man.

Interesting that Ike Pruitt was born in TX. I wonder if he is related to Melinda Prewitt/ Pruitt/Pruett wife of Jasper's brother William H. ? I haven't expanded her family beyond her parents and siblings.
