I am seeking information on the ancestry of my grandfather, William Walker Peed, who lived in or near Eureka, CA in the late 1910's, early 1920's. I do not know where he was born or whether he died there in Eureka. He was married to Maybelle Walsh (of MO?), and had two children, Margaret Peed (1917?), who married Reginald St. Louis, and my father, William Frank Peed (1919), who married Jean Frances Maurer (1921, Lamar CO). William Frank may have been named William Walker Peed Jr. at birth and changed his middle name at a later date.
William Walker Peed was very involved with the lumber industry and was included in the industry publication "Men of Timber".
I would appreciate any clues anyone could give me... thanks much in advance!
