Roy William Beck b Aug 4 1887

I'm researching my husbands family. I have come to a stand still at his great grandfather. His name was Roy William Beck. I know a little about him. His fathers name was Roy Beck and he possibly came from Germany or other European country. Roy William was born in Missippippi County Missouri
August 4 1887. He married Iva Savannah Silliman Dec 25 1911 in Charleston Missouri. They had at least 2 children sons Granville b. September 07, 1914 and Edward J birthday unknown. I'm needing info on Roy's parents, siblings and info on his wife Iva. I know that Roy and Iva divorced sometime after they moved to Illinois. Roy moved to the Herrin area and died there June 30, 1924. Iva remarried at some point and later divorced her second husband. Roy and Iva's children had been put in the Odd Fellows Orphanage in Lincoln Illinois. Iva died January 06, 1978 in Peoria and is buried at the nursing home(she resided there for several years I believe before her death) cemetary. I know there were a couple of daughters born to Iva and Roy. Granville's son Phillip (my father in law) said that Granville left the Odd Fellow home when he was 16 so that he could start working to make enough money to buy a home for his siblings who were still in the home and his mother Iva. Granvilles house was in Clinton Illinois. If anyone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
