Edgar Harmon Sevier in MO/SD/NE

I am looking for information on Edgar Harmon Sevier b.27 December 1877 in Missouri.
I have a land grant for him dated 1909 in South Dakota
1910 Census puts him at 32yo in Edgemont Ward 1, Fall River South Dakota with his wife Flora Belle Long 39yo, and their three children Vera V. Sevier, Ivah/Iva Beryle Sevier b. 3 March 1902, and Flora Edna Sevier (my grandmother).

His WW1 draft registration which puts him in Cherry County Nebraska in 1918, and 1920 Federal Census that puts him in Gordon Nebraska in that year. It lists him as 41 yo, his wive Flora as 47yo, Vera as 14, Ivah/Iva as 17, and my Gmother, Flora Edna at 9 years old.

Unfortunately, I have found nothing for the parents of Edgar Harmon Sevier, so this is my brick wall. There are family stories of there being Indian blood in the history, but there is no proof of that or anything else because the history stops at my Grandfather. If anyone has any kind of information on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
