    Theough they are so simlar, ir now appears that these two records arefor different persons.  The 1935 Oklahoma City directory has JamesElmer McCall in Oklahoma City.  We do know that Elmer and Lahoma werenot married very long, and no divorce recrod has been found.  A JamesElmer McCall is enumerated in the 1940 census in Bastrop, MorehouseParish, Louisiana (not far from Monroe).  He was 20 years old, so is amatch for Lahoma, born in 1914.

    His wife in that census was named Crystal and they had two children.The oldest was 5-year old Sidney Day McCall, at age 5.  If Sindney isage 5, then Elmer and Crystal were married before 1835, when JamesElmer McCall was reported as the husband of G Lahoma (Jenkins) inOklahoma City.  Further the 1940 census reports that Elmer was livingin Morehouse Parish, Lousiana, in 1935.

    James Elmer McCall Jr's father is living next door to him in 1940,enumerated as James Elmer McCall Sr.
