William Reed b. 1858 Iowa d. 1956 OK

I am searching for any information on my great grandfather, William Reed, Born Jan 10 1858 (thought to be in Iowa), and died Jan 16, 1956 in Billings, OK. [He moved to Missouri while young.]

He had a wife named Mary, who was born in 1864 or 1867 and died in 1934.

William Reed's parents were also Wm. and Mary Reed.

William Reed had three children; a son named Frank, a daughter named Bessie, and a daughter named Mollie Reed.

Mollie Reed married Ernest Bender Skaggs. Mollie died by fire in Sedalia, Pettis County, Missouri. Her daughter was also born in Sedalia; and it is believed that Mollie was born and married in Sedalia. It is also believed that Mollie married again after her divorce from Ernest Bender Skaggs aroun 1913.

William Reed may have had an uncle called Manny Reed (brother to Wm. Reed), and William Reed had a sister named Janie, a brother named M. M. Reed, and possibly a sister named Lizzie or something similar.

After William's daughter Mollie died, he and his wife moved to Blackwell, OK, where they raised their granddaughter, Mary Frances Skaggs.

William Reed died in the home of a granddaughter named Mrs. Ruby Graves. His known grandchildren were Roy Sands, Frank Swope, Mary Frances (Skaggs) Larssen, Clarence Reed, Jim Reed, and Mrs. Lula Beeby, Mrs. Mildred (Mary) Harmon, and Ruby Graves.

Thanks for any help given.
