Bland Family From: Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri

I have been working on my Bland Family Tree for over a year. I thought I had done very well until my Mom gave me my old baby book that provided information that showed me it was all incorrect. Now I am starting over again! If anyone can help me it would be sooooooooooooo very appreciated! This is what I now have...it's not much to go on!
My Mother is a Price born in 1938 in Gadsden,Yuma,Az.
She married my father in 1956 - Troy M. Bland Jr., born 12 Dec. 1929 in McAlester, Pittsburg, Ok. and died 6 Aug 1997 in San Diego, Ca. I am the only child of this union.
Troy Bland Jr.'s parents are: Troy M. Bland Sr. born 12 Dec 1907 in Oklahoma, died probably Apr 1979 in California.
Troy's mother is: Jewel Marie Shropshire born 25 Feb 1910 in Pittsburg, Ok., died 2 Mar 1992 in Yuma, Az.
This is now where my tree get's confusing!
My baby book says that Troy M. Bland Sr. (my grandfather) was born to William A. Bland and Lizzie Gestes. In the 1910 Federal Census I have William A. Bland widowed with a 2 yr old Troy M. Bland (Sr.). I cannot find any information on a Elizabeth or Lizzie Gestes what so ever. In the 1920 Census I find William A. Bland now married to a Nora Bland b 1878 in Mo. (maiden name unknown), with a 12 yr old Troy Sr. In the 1930 Census Troy Sr. is now married to Jewell Marie Shropshire and have my father Troy M. Jr. 1 yr. old.
That's all I have. If anyone could shed some light on my family tree I would really, really, appreciate it!
Cynthia
