Pierce family of Kentucky? Arkansas Oklahoma

I am at a dead end on my family. I have posted messages on other sites and have had no luck. Here is what I have- if you can help, please email me.

My great great grandfather: C.B. and Martha Ann Pierce

1 William Henry Pierce (he was called Henry by everyone) he was born 5/17/1878 and died 2/15/1975, there is conflicting info on his place of birth- one source states Kentucky and the other says Winslow, Washington Co, Ark-and according to the SSDI Arkansas is correct.His obituary listed one sister surviving him: Myrtle Osborn of California, and two brothers and two sisters preceded him in death- the obituary does not give their names. Henry married Lula Mayfield in 1898 in Proctor, Oklahoma, and they had Ulysses Grant Pierce and Leonard Mack Pierce, also one daughter, Alpha Pierce Todd. Lula died in 1915, and Henry married my great grandmother, Dora Gordon 5/5/1917 in Joplin, Mo. Henry and Dora had Frances, Odell, and Luia Cleo(my grandfather).
info on children:
Ulysses Grant- born 7/13/1905 (according to SSDI) and died June 1965 one known child, Grant Clayton
Leonard Mack-Born 4/11/1913 Fogle, OK, died 4/11/1983 in Temple, Texas one known Child, Lois Bowling of Arvin,California
Alpha Pierce-Todd- born 3/12/1907 (according to SSDI) died 1999 no further info.
Frances- born about 1917 died 1984 married name Duncan, no children
Luia Cleo (myline)- born 5/27/1924 Fort Gibson, OK, died 1/5/1987 Cushing Ok, married Margaret Courtney, six children, ron, david, terry, ann, debbie, diane (do not need info on LC or his children).
Odell -born about 1926 Ft. Gibson died 1984 married Nadine Troxell five children, bobby, kay, les, pat, and rocky.
Henry and Dora moved to Cushing, OK in 1941. According to Henry's obit, he was preceded in death by three sons, and two daughters- the problem is, only one of the above children was deceased at the time of Henry's death on 2/15/1975, so there are two unknown sons and two unknown daughters.
In info I got from my aunt, she says
"I also found a card addressed to Uncle Henry and Aunt Dora: Postmarked 1957 from:
Mr and Mrs Jay Ward and Family
3700 East 14 th
Amarillo, Texas.
We have no idea who they are"
I am assuming that either Jay was one of Henry's sister's children, or his wife could have been either one of henry's brothers or sisters children.
If you can help me find out what C.B.'s full name is and maiden name of Martha, siblings parents, etc. I would greatly appreciate it.
