Emma and Ira were married on 16 Dec 1914. They had two children.

Ira's WWI Draft Registration dated 12 Sep 1918 shows he and Emma were living in Center Point, Iowa. He was of medium height and build with blue eyes and brown hair, and his occupation was Steam Engineer.

Ira died from injuries sustained in a saw mill accident. After Ira died, Emma had a very hard time. Their daughter, Doris, died soon after. Sometime later Emma married Ira's brother, Roy. By early 1925, Bernard had also died and Emma was pregnant. Tragically, Emma died due to complications from childbirth.

Believe Emma and Ira, and perhaps Doris and Bernard, are buried by Emma's parents in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Linn County, Iowa.

Emma and Roy were married about 1924. They had one child.

Roy's WWI Draft Registration dated 5 May 1917 shows he was a single man living in Houston, Texas. He was of medium height and build with brown eyes and brown hair. He was a laborer with the Evans Wrecking Company. Also noted under physical deformities, although hard to read; "1st & 2nd fingers off left hand, middle toe on right foot off."

On the 1930 Census, Roy and Imogene were living on his uncle's farm in Liberty, Van Buren, Arkansas. His uncle, Tanner B Titus, was a farmer and Roy was working as a farm laborer. Roy's mother (and Tanner's sister), Julia, was living there also.
