    In the 1910 census Mart is recorded as Sanford Mart Tateum, inChickasaw Township, no incorporated area, in Pontotoc, Oklahoma.  Thisis where Ada is now located, and in 1920 their residence is in Ada, anincorporated town.

    Family sources report that Janis' full name is Janis Milt Corbin.  The1920 census lists here as Milt A.  I cannot account for the middleinitial A.  In 1910 Davis was listed as David.  The correct name,going by other sources, is Davis.

    There was another child appearing between these two in 1910, who ismissing in 1920.  This was Sam L Tatum, age 7, thus born about 1903,who would have been 17 in 1920.  It is possible he has moved away towork, or has married, though 17 is early for a man to marry in thatera.  Sam more likely died before the 1920 census.  I have found notother information on a child name Sam L.

    The birth date on the grave marker of Sanford Mart Tatum in LightningRidge Cemetery in Pontotoc County is earlier than any  of thesecensuses, showing year of birth as 1868.  This seems to refer to thesame person, however.

    It is of interest in this regard that one census report would make thebirth year of Mart's wife Milt 1868.   Perhaps these dates wereconfused when the date of birth was put on Mart's gravestone.  I havenot yet found information on Milt's burial.

    In the 1930 census, Mart is reported as a widower.  This wouldindicate that Milt died before the 1930 census.

    By 1940, Mart has married again and is enumerated with his second wifeEthel, and three of his children.

    -------------

    Notice that the surviving wife's name is Ethel.  We noted that in 1930Mat was a widower, meaning his first wife Milt had died before thatcensus.  I don't have any informaiton on the second wife.  I have notseen death information for Milt.
