James KEEFE m Letha son Vernon Osage, Co OK

Hi,

It looks as from the 1930 Census:

KEEFE, James who Owns his home, valued at $2,300 Age: 49 Married Age when first married: 44. Birthplace: Ohio Father: Ohio Mother: Ohio Occupation: StoneMason on Houses He is a Wage worker No Military service. (Born about 1881)
Wife: Letha E. Age: 38 Married Age when first married :20 Birthplace Ohio Father: Virginia Mother: Ohio (Born about 1892)
Son: Vernon J. Age: 7 Birthplace: Oklahoma Father: Ohio Mother: Ohio (Born about 1923)
Neighbors: John L. and Minnie HENSON, Leta HUNTER, James? Whitchson.
It seems that the Keefe's were married about 1924/25.
Letha has been married at least once before because age of when first married is 20, she is now 38 where as James states age when first married as 44 and he is 49 now.

I think in the 1920 I have this same James Keefe back in Ohio married to a "Maud".

1925 Pawhuska City Directory for Pawhuska, Osage Co.,OK
Keefe Jas (Letha) street forman City r400 W. 11th

1938 Pawhuska City Directory for Pawhuska, Osage Co.,OK
Atkins Minnie Mrs furn rms 607 Ki-He-Kah av h do
Another page give: American Rooms (Clara Long & Jim Keefe) 601 1/2 Ki-he-kah (bell symbol) 1468

Another notation for Jim Keefe at American Rooms is that he is "h" for Householder whereas others are only "r" for roomers. Is he part owner?

This same 1938 directory no longer shows a James and Letha Keefe together.

Any one related? Thanks for any help.
