Wow, thank you! Some more searching turned up all of this:

James and Eva as you found them in the 1930 census in Sioux City IA, with Robert and Elwyn and adopted daughter Harriet Martin, as well as a son-in-law Harley Anderson and daughter Harriet Anderson: and in 1940 with Eva and just Hariette Martin: Link to the WWII draft record of James Herbert Getty (born 5/6/1879 in Buck Grove IA) showing daughter Marjorie Pearl: Since we know the names of his parents, I found him in the 1900 census: and two possible prior marriages for him, on 1/1/1902 in Charter Oak IA to Cora Ann Bray: and on 11/18/1905 in Woodbury IA to Viola Cummings: - I say possible because everything fits, but we have two different maiden names for his mother. I did not have any luck finding him in 1910, but you have him above in 1920 with yet another spouse Ethel, and children Robert Getty and Marjorie P Getty, and three stepchildren, Irene, Dale, and Merle Lukechart:

OK, so birth record for Violet Getty (4/29/1905 Davison SD), parents James Getty and Cora Brey: and her listed in the Iowa Old Age Tax Assistance Records instead born 4/29/1906 in Sioux City: although I did not see any other information for her, including a census hit. So then I think they divorced and Cora remarried to a Chris(t) Mesenbrink, and we have them in the 1925 state census: and the image shows them with Cora's mother Edith Bray erroneously listed as "Idiht Mesenbrink". Just Cora and Chris in 1930: and 1940:

You have his wife Ethel from the 1930 census as Ethel May Fosnaugh, first husband Andrew Jackson "Jack" Luckechart, which then matches this death record: and this memorial (I updated her date of death and maiden name): where she is linked to Robert Herbert Getty (3/8/1917 – 3/17/1945): who was KIA in WWII, and a child from her first marriage who was not in the 1920 census, Cecil Lukecart (1901 – June 1954): and a memorial for Robert's brother Elwin Orville Getty (2/23/1920 – 3/29/1985): who was not recorded in the 1920 census for some reason? This birth record proves his parentage: so I linked him to Ethel as well.

So back to Eva's children from her first husband, based on the birth record I found this death record for Stella: who died after the 1900 census, so I made updates on her memorial: Did not see any other people with the last name Martin in that cemetery, so I wonder who she is buried with, if anyone. Next the marriage record for her sister Zora to Ross O'Riley: and the memorial for Zora Martin O'Riley (1891 – 1937): Marriage record of Marion to William Lynam: and memorial of Marion L. Martin Lynam (3/4/1896 – 9/26/1961): Marriage record of oldest son John to Alma Webster: and in the SSDI (8/12/1898 – 11/17/1991): and his memorial: and his wife. Marriage record of Adelburt to Opal Manor: and his memorial, for which I did submit the date corrections from the records in my initial post: As for Louis, no death information yet, but this may be the memorial for his remarried wife: and I believe his full name was Cone Louis Martin – that is, Cone and Louise Martin are the same person.

Pretty awesome! I linked all of those memorials to that of John Martin!

Still though, Eva eludes the best of searching... but having found memorials for most of her kids, she may not elude us for long.
