    In 1930 Ernest is married. The name of his wife is marred, the pagehaving a faded line vertically running through her first name.Ancestry transcribes it as Darila.  It does not look like the letterbefore the L is dotted, and it does not look like the last letter isan A.  But I cannot make sense of the configuration.  She appears asDaisey in some genealogies, but some have her as Darila Daisey,probably trying to account for the name appearing here.

    1930 Federal Census, Washita County, Oklahoma, 14 April, OakdaleTownship, District 17, page 5B, Hse #142, Fam #152
    Christian, Ernest  Head (Home Ownership Status unknown) Does not ownsa radio M W 21 First Married at age 18 OK TX OK Farmer [b abt 1909]
    Christian, Darla [Daisy?] Wife F W 19 First Married at age 16 OK AR OK[b abt 1911]
    Christian, Ray  Son M W 2yrs2mos OK AR OK Farm Laborer [b abt Jan1928]

    The enumerator has made some error here on the birth places of thewife and son.  Note that Ernest's wife is reported born in Oklahoma,but his son's mother is reported as born in Arkansas, just as Ernest'swife's mother

    There are two families given the same house and family number.  Thesecond should have a different family number, even if living in thesame house.  The second head of household is Charlie Hendricks.  It isnot clear how they are related, but it is possible Hendricks' wifeVera is Daila's sister.  But this duplicate numbering may be simply anenumerator error.

    Audrey Christian provdes a few more details in her genealogy.
