      Name: Earnest Whaley
      Gender: Male
      Age: 21
      Birth Date: abt 1896
      Marriage Date: 21 Jan 1917

      RJCarr, 10 May 2020:
      Based upon my research, Ora Lorena Causey (1901-1998) was never the wife of Earnest William Whaley (1987-1950).

      Many family trees have conflated her name with Ira Kirkpatrick (FaG memorial 175564483). Ira’s first name appears to read Ora on her Oklahoma wedding license to Earnest Whaley dated 21 Jan 1917. Earnest & Ira were the parents of four children as carried on the 1930 and 1940 census records. They were:

      Edward Cecil (1920-1944)
      Virginia Katheryn (1922-2007)
      Jimmie Ruth (1927-1991)
      Robert Lee (1930-living)

      On the other hand, Ora Lorena Causey appears to first be married to Percie Ware (1897-1961) from 1899 until perhaps 1940. In 1941 Ora Lorena is shown with the last name Whaley and residing in Oklahoma City as noted below:

      Residence Year: 1941
      Street address: 309 39th
      Residence Place: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA
      Spouse: James A Whaley
