Here goes for now.
 
Okey Greathouse married Victora/ia Greathouse on 25 Oct 1906 in Doddridge Co WV.  Okey was 30 and Victoria was 23.  Both were born in Doddridge Co and living in Doddridge Co WV.  He gave the info for the marriage license.  They were married according to the marriage license "at the publick highway."

Moses A Greathouse, 69, shoemaker, VA
Lucretia, 71, VA
Joseph S Adams, 22, married grandson, farmer,
Luella Adams, 22, married wife

(James A Greathouse and Luella Adams are the children of Moses and Lucretia Peck Greathouse)

1900 Cove, Doddridge County, WV

Okey Greathouse is a boarder in the household of Elbert Moran.  Okey is 23 and single, born in WV.  His birth is listed as Sept 1876.  {Incidentally, his sister, Lillie, is also living in Cove, Doddridge}

Okey Greathouse, 34
Victora, 26
Forest, 2
Arlis, 7/12

Okey Greathouse, 44, WV, laborer
Victora, 36, WV
Forest, 12
Arlis, 10
Byrl, 7
Maggie, 2

In 1918 Okey filled out a WWI draft registration giving this info, born 7 March 1876, tall, slender, brown eyes, gray hair, New Milton Doddridge Co WV, farming, nearest relative was Victoria Greathouse, wife, New Milton, Doddridge WV, date of registration was Sep 12, 1918, his age 42 years

Okey's father was James Greathouse who was born July 30, 1844 and died May 13, 1925 in Harrison Co WV.  He married Susan Dicks who died May 4, 18(8 or 9)6.

James Greathouse's father was Moses Greathouse who married Lucretia Peck.

Moses Greathouse's father was Gabriel Greathouse who married Mary/Nancy Hustead.

Gabriel Greathouse's father was William Greathouse (Sr.) who married Barbara Schultze.

Have not located Okey in 1930 under the name Greathouse or Dix/Dicks.  Is it possible he died in the 1920s?  Haven't located Victoria either, nor their children.
