L.M. and S.C McMains / 1920 / Wilson County, Texas

While researching the McMains of Texas, I have run into two families in the 1920 census that I have not been able to identify.

In the 1920 census, Precinct 4, Wilson County, Texas (T625-1859, page 6A), I found the following:

Line #36: L.M. McMains, head, male, age 43, born OK, father U.S., mother U.S., farmer
Line #37: Fannie McMains, wife, female, age 46, born TX, father TX, mother TX
Line #38: J.D. McMains, son, male, age 16 (does not read or write), born TX, father TX, mother TX
Line #39: Harvey McMains, son, male, age 14 (in school), born TX, father TX, mother TX
Line #40: Luna L. McMains, daughter, female, age 10 (in school), born TX, father TX, mother TX
Line #41: Bessie McMains, daughter, female, age 5, born TX, father TX, mother TX

Line #42: S.C. McMains, head, male, age 23, born TX, Father TX, mother TX, farmer
Line #43: Claire McMains, wife, female, age 16, born TX, father TX, mother TX
Line #44 Fred McMains, son, male, age 1/12, born TX, father TX, mother TX

Another McMains was found on page 2A. I have identified her:

Georgia McMains, daughter of George Clinton McMains / Valverde Gage. She was living in Pandora, TX with 3 aunts Nancy, Elvira and Belle Tinkle. All four of the women were operators for the local telephone company.

I also note that L.M. McMains is probably not the biological father of the children listed in his family. He is listed as born in OK, and parents somewhere in the U.S. The children's listings show their father born in TX.

Anybody got a clue as to who L.M. and S.C. McMains are? Is there any connection to Georgia McMains and the Tinkle family?
