Need Help, FESSENDEN in Morton Co. KS, after 1914.

I am trying to trace descendants of my gr gr grandfather's sister, Polly THOMPSON FESSENDEN. Polly married Milo Fessenden in 1850 in Michigan. They had one son, Willard Fessenden, b. 1853. She died sometime after that. Willard remarried, a girl from down the street, also named Polly. After Edgar was born (son of Polly #2), the family left Michigan for Kansas.

Willard married Angie J. (Unk.) and had seven children. It looks like the only son was Sidney. Willard had 3 half brothers.

Sidney Fessenden and Grace Leonard married and are found in the Oklahome City (Fourth ward-I think) Oklahoma census for 1910. They have one child listed, Lorena S. who is 3.

Grace Fessenden died 1917, in Oklahoma. I have no death date for Sidney but he is mentioned in his grandfather (M.A.) Milo's intestate. The trial date for it is April 9, 1914 and it shows him living in Oklahoma City. Somewhere I picked up a place of death-not the date, and it shows Elkhart, Morton Co. Kansas. (There was a Sidney S. Fessenden from Wisconsin also in Kansas, who was older than the Sidney that I'm looking at.)

I am really kind of interested in what happened to Sidney. With Grace having died so young, I am wondering how many children did she and Sidney have? Were any sons? I'd like to locate their names if there are any. I'd gladly pay expenses for an obituary or death record for Sidney, if he died in Morton Co. If there's someone willing to help, I can be reached at:
