Now, if the James B. Lewis on the 1900 census in Milam Co, TX is yours, I think I've found him on the 1910 and 1920 census in OK. He's married again. You might want to do some research in Pottawatomie Co, OK. Your James William Lewis had a daughter in OK in 1905, that clue led me to look at census records in OK.

1880 census Crawford Co, AR:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

J. B. LOUIS Self M Male W 29 AR Farmer TN TN
Mary LOUIS Wife M Female W 30 KY Keeping House KY KY
John LOUIS Son S Male W 8 AR --- ---
**Waide LOUIS Son S Male W 6 AR --- ---
Elvy M. LOUIS Son S Male W 4 AR --- ---
Huston LOUIS Son S Male W 3 AR --- ---
James LOUIS Son S Male W 5M AR --- ---
Mattie BOWIN Sister W Female W 23 AR TN TN

Now I'm sure the one in OK is your guy. Living next door to James B. Lewis in 1910 is **Wade Lewis.

I searched Rootsweb's WorldConnect for the less common name of Wade, found him listed with father James Boone Lewis. So just enter Lewis, James Boone. Quite a few working on him, but click and look at the information on the ones who show he died in CA -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi

Happy Hunting (^_^)
