Ira Ranck, New Columbia, White Deer Twp.

I am looking for info on Ira Ranck, b. Aug 1886 to Samuel G. and Susan S. Ranck of New Columbia, White Deer Twp. Ira married a Margaret S. about 1907 according to the 1910 census. I suspect she was Margaret Ellen Smith b. 1889 to Benjamin Franklin and Emma Caroline (Winegarden) Smith, and I'd love to prove or disprove that.

I know that Margaret married three times by 1944, and I can't find Ira or Margaret on the 1920 census, so perhaps he died and she remarried to her second husband. Her third husband was William R. C. Jones, but I don't know her second husband's name. I have a postcard Margaret addressed but never mailed to a Mrs. Ira (or Ida) Rank Green (no date). Any idea who she was?

Anyway, when Margaret obtained her delayed birth certificate in 1944, three people signed affadavits as to her age. They were Elizabeth N. Walker (she was the wife of George Edward Walker and Ira Ranck's sister), C. C. Ranck (no idea who that is or what sex), and Martha E. Farley (she was the second wife of Francis N. Farley and daughter of Samuel C. and Sarah C. Ranck).

I appreciate any leads. Thanks.
