i have SO MANY brick walls; looking up things were i can find answers or potential answers so quickly always gives me the squee. :)

i just found a death for james that i think is a match: James H Bliss
California, Death Index, 1940-1997
birth: 13 Jun 1899 Tennessee
death: 06 Jan 1965 Sonoma,​ California,​ United States
parents: Dalby (mother's maiden name, probably)

and that led me to this:
"United States Census, 1920," James H Bliss in household of James H Bliss, , Pulaski, Arkansas

Estimated Birth Year: 1899

eta: there's a family tree that lists viola's father as "Green Elijah Thorp" http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/26788650/person/1927875426?ssrc=

there are only the youngest 3 children listed, and of those only a death year for virgil, so it might be someone on his line who did the tree.
