      Orville shown living with his father Abel Fisher in 1920. Curiously, in the same census Orville's wife Ella is found listed as a widow, and with their children Paul Vernon and Leslie living among Mexican salt miners in Harrison Township, Rice Co., Kansas. Orville apparently never followed the family to Kansas. Instead, in Apr 1921 Orville marries Minnie Leona Ray in 1921 and fathers a second family.
