I'm not finding them in 1920 and 1930 but I think Lawrence Hoback is in

Kitsap County, WA in 1930.

Uncle Lawrence did end up in Washington or at least that's where he lived

when I was growing up and they visited (1960's and on).  Momma has his death

certificate (I think).  Definitely right family.

Now looking for anything on *Myrtle A. or W. Sellers b. 1898 Oklahoma.

Middle initial depends on which census you look at.

She was a telephone operator,(back when there was such a thing).  Last

information I have for her is on my father' obituary, (Oct, 1966).  She is listed

as Myrtle BISHOP, living in Pratt, Kansas. 

    I have not found her in the 1930 census yet.
