Yes, this is the same person.  I cannot find him after the 1930 census.  I did find an Orville in the 40 census that has an Orville in Ward 13 Indianapolis Center Township Marian, IN.  This O. Rogers is tentant  with the George, Inez and Donald Travers.   There is a Beatrice Rogers age (I  I have written 29-I was thinking 39) and it says sister in law.  I suppose that means sister in law to to the Travers.  

George born n California, Inez born in OK.  

Still puts Orville the age at 32 that should be.  Looking at the occuptation in the census, it looks as if both Orville's in the 30 and 40 census worked in an office.

My objective is in looking for a male descendant of Orville.  Trying to find a person for DNA to connect  our family to his and the John Rogers (1809-1887) of Polk Co TN married to Rebecca Conner Rogers.  Orville's dad, Samuel was John's youngest child.
