    The middle initial M here probably represents a nickname Em as a shortform of the name Emory, which appears in his full name on theCalifornia Death record below.

    Green, George Son M W 12 OK TX OK

    George's date of birth on the grave info below is 6 August 1916.  Thisaccords with his reported age of 3 in the 1920 census.  But in 1930 heis reported as only 12 years old.  In what appears to be his thecorrect marriage records, George reports his age as 19 in 1935.

    Note that when they married in 1935, both George and Jewel living inDeQueen, Arkansas, just over the border from Oklahoma.  This is quitea distance away form Duncan, Oklahoma, where he was living in hisparents in 1930.  My thanks to cousin an coresearcher Marion Mixon forfinding this marriage record.  The census shows that George's parentshad also moved to DeQueen from Parmer County, Texas, and the 1940census reports that was their residence in 1935.  But they were backin Parmer County for the 1940 census, where they were reported asresident in Friona.

    George Green
    Age 19, Birth Year abt 1916
    Residence DeQueen, Sevier, Arkansas
    Spouse's Name Jewel Wells
    Spouse's Age 16, Spouse's Residence DeQueen, Sevier, Arkansas
    Marriage 5 Sep 1935 Sevier County
    Marriage License Date 5 Sep 1935

    For the 1940 census, they were enumerated in Parmer County, Texas,where his aprents ahd previouslylliived and had mvoed back befroe the1940 census.  In 1940 hsi paretns were living in the town of Friona,while George and Jewel were living out in the county farming.  Thiscensus reported that in 1935 they are also living in Parmer County.This is possible if they moved soon after their marriage.  That addsmore uncertainty, though, as to why they were living in DeQueen,Arkansas in September 1935 when they got married.

    Green, Donald Son M W 3 Grade 0 b Texas Same place Parmer County in1935 [b abt 1937]

    A quick check on other familly records clarifies somewhat that theirwhole famliy have been living in DeQueen in 1935.  Taylor and Mattie'srecord in the 1940 census shows that they and the unmarreid sons Elmerand Glen were living in DeQueen in 1935.  So it appears George and hisnew wife moved on earlier, soon after their marriage, then his parentsand brothers joined them some time the next year or later.  They wereall enumerated in Friona, Texas, near the New Mexico border.
