    Notes 
    • The date of the marriage is not known for sure. The obituary of John O. King says they were married on December 23, 1919, while the obituary of Myrtle Speers says November 23, 1919. I will stick with the December date figuring the widow would remember her wedding date more accurately than her kids would when it was time for her funeral 4 years later.
