The date of marrage for Ben and Maggie is unknown at present time. Ben`s first marriage was to Viola Lanier August 3,1889. They had 2 sons before they divorced.In 1894 Viola married L.V.Bartley.Ben and Maggie married? They both died in Austin in 1949,9 days apart, as Connie Tierney stated. Both are buried in Bellvue Cemetery, Bellvue,Texas in the Stevens Family Plot next to P.C.Stevens.We installed a double marker for them recently.Archer County Historical Commission and Jack Loftin, Marie and Craig Loftin, state William Yocum and Nancy Harrell as the parents of James Henry (Ben) Yocum. Maggie and Ben also lived in Parker County and Clay County, Texas. The second child of Ben and Viola Lanier Yocum, George Samuel Yocum born Feb. 19,1893 in Laneport, Texas, was my grandfather. At the time of this birth, Ben and Viola must have separated, because Ben`s address was at Springtown, Parker County, Texas. Terry Yocum
