    June 14 1900 he was listed on the census as living with his son, John William Pinkney in Jackson twp, Sharp Co, Ark. It says he is married.
    June 23, 1900 he is again listed as living with his nephew, William Karr Spurlock. Here he is a widower.
    But also in the 1900 census, his wife Julia is still alive and living with a daughter in Oklahoma. Perhaps he had become ill by that time and Julia could not take care of him. So, his son John WP would have known that his step-mother was alive, but his nephew Wm Karr might have considered him a widower.
    The move from one house to another could be the result of illness in John WP?s house. John?s wife had died by 1901 when he remarried.
