  • I have not found Jim Yeary in the 1900 census.  His death certificate says he was born in Oklahoma, Territory.  His WWI draft registration says he was born in Marietta, which was in Indian Territory, not Oklahoma Territory.  The year of birth is given in all sources as 15 September 1889, except his WWI draft registration, which says the year was 1890.

    A family genealogy reports that Jim married Pearl Norris on 30 January 1909.
    --  Ancestry Trees, Norris Family,*v06t4483&id=I069

    The 1910 census reports Jim and Pearl have been married 0 years!  The census does not report states of birth for either of them or their parents, nor give an age for either.

    Yeary, Pearl  Wife F W [no age] Married 0 years [No birth states reported]

    Jim's WWI Draft Registration in 1917 reports his birth date as 15 Sep 1890, but all other sources report 15 Sep 1889.

    The Social Security Death Index also reports his death, agreeing in the month and year.  The birth date there is 1889, rather than 1890 as in the WWI registration.
