|Based on the information provided by family members,
I have been able to locate some of the Census years where Harry Pierce Dean and
are enumerated. Using the census data I have made educated guesses on the
persons, dates, places, etc, where events took place. Below is the information I
have been able to find along with the assumptions that I have made. This data in
no way represents definitive factual information about the people and/or the events that I have
assumed. As more information is discovered it become easier to locate
records and information. If you are able to clarify any of the information
or if this "jogs" your memory, please let me know. Any
information especially date and locations are very helpful when attempting to
find additional records.
In the 1900 Junction City, Union County, Arkansas Federal Census we find Harry living with his Mother. (Junction City is listed as in Henderson Township.) Harry is listed as:
In the 1910 De Queen, Sevier County, Arkansas Federal Census we find Harry living with his Mother and her family. (De Queen is listed as in Bear Creek Township.) Harry is listed as:
By 1920 Harry is living in Arkansas with his family as we find them in the 1920 Malvern, Hot Springs County, Arkansas Federal Census, enumerated January 15, 1920.
Harry is listed as the head of the household, born 1892 (age 28) in Louisiana, his father and mother were born in Louisiana as well. His profession is listed as Electrician for the Gas Pipe Line. His wife's name is Naoma, born 1891 (age29) in Arkansas. They have one child. The child listed is:
While his Mother and step-father had relocated to Oklahoma it appears that Harry had previously met Naoma and married in Arkansas and had already settled down sometime around 1913.
By 1930 Harry is living in Oklahoma with his family as we find them in the 1930 Catoosa, Rogers County, Oklahoma Federal CEnsus.
Harry is listed as the head of the household, born 1896 (age, looks like 34) in Arkansas, his father and mother are listed as being born in Arkansas as well. His profession is listed as Farmer. His wife's name is Lorene, born 1904 (age 26) in Missouri. They have two children. The children are listed as:
Sometime before Margie was born, Harry had divorced Naoma, re-married Lorene and moved back to Oklahoma. Based on age at marriage, they were married about 1922. I also suspect that Lorene provided the information to the census worker, as Harry's place of birth as well as that of his Mother and Father seem to be incorrect. His age does not match up as well.
