Ralph Burton Burns in California died about 1956

Uncle Ralph Burton Burns died when I was about 3 years old, in 1956. I never knew him, but have heard he was last known by my information to be in California.

His father was my Grandpa Ray Everett Burns, and his mother was Grandma Katherine Balbina Griffin Burns, from Iowa.

I know Uncle Ralph had been married twice. I don't have information on the names of his wives. I know he had a daughter Sally who was last known to live in Arkansas. She may or may not have full siblings.

He also had 2 sons I believe from his second wife and I know their names were Danny and Gary. I believe one of them was killed in a motorcycle accident many years ago.
I dont know but think the one killed was Gary. Danny, if still alive would probably be at least late 60's to 70's, or early 80's. I just really have no idea, as all of this information is a tidbit I heard here and there over the years. My dad, Rollin Eugene Burns (aka: Gene) was Uncle Ralph's little brother, and they had a sister, Mary Burns Danielson, and a brother Raymond Burns, all from Iowa.

I am looking for any of Uncle Ralph's children, or grandchildren.

Please help if you can. I would like to at least make contact and get to know my long lost cousins.
