July 1918 (Lela's letters) moved to 3521 Smart Ave., Kansas City, MO

Lela sent back a stream of letters from Oct 1917 to July 1919 while touring in Cora Youngblood Corson's band. However none of them mention communicating with Daniel. They ask about his poor health instead. In one she says "papa would be angry...but would probably soon forget", so I believe he had some dementia. She was in England when he died. In her journal, she wrote only "Feb. 4 news of father's death"

Buried next to Daniel and Adah in Riverview Cemetery is "Elizabeth Myers b.Dec 29, 1904". Since Adah says in 1910 she is mother of 8, with 8 still living, I believe Elizabeth could be daughter of Virgil and Cora. She would have died before the KS State Census in 1905.
