    Notes:

    At the time of the 1910 Oklahoma Census, a Stella WEST was listed as a boarder in the home of Samuel Massey(?) in Baucum Twp, Jackson County, Oklahoma. She was listed as Female, White, age 18, Married, born in Texas, with both parents born in Texas. The column about her ability to read and write was left blank, so it is probable that someone other than she gave her information to the enumerator. Although she is listed as married, she is living apart from her husband. He son Roy West was born about 17 months after this listing, so presumably she and her husband were reunited, at least briefly.

    Her son by a subsequent marriage, Cecil Afton Lewis, was born some two years after Roy. Both were born in Jackson County.

    At the time of the 1920 Federal census, Stella and Will Lewis were renting a home at 129 Chickasha Avenue in Chickasha. Their census listing read as follows:

    Lewis, Will E. Hd R M W 37 M -- Yes Yes Tex. Unknown La. Cook Restaurant
    Lewis, Stella Wife F W 25 M -- Yes Yes Texas Texas Texas Waitress Restaurant
    ---------, Roy Son M W 8 1/2 Yes --- --- Oklahoma Texas Texas
    ---------, Cecil Son M W 6 1/2 -- -- -- Oklahoma Texas Texas

    She was living with her third husband, Walter Winfield Strong, as the time of the 1930 census.
