After living in the Northern part of Indiana, Oscar Herman ELLER returned to Monroe County where, according to J.W. Eller, he was "...engaged in farming and teaming." He spent two years in Oklahoma, where he was a street car motorman. He then was in Kansas City working in the packing houses.
In 1915 he came back to the farm, where he was in 1918 when J.W. Eller wrote his book.
J.W. notes two marriages. For the first in 1907, he is unable to provide a name. However, Dr. Kirk Graham tells us she is Miss. Bass. Dr. Graham also notes a second wife, Pansy Withers, to whom Oscar Eller marries in 1920.
