Would like to find living descendants of this family:

James Edward Butner b. 19 Aug 1869 MO d. 16 Sept 1910 married ca. 1891 in Platte Co MO Cora B Riley b. Jan 1870. Cora Riley was the daughter of James T. Riley born 10 Mar 1837 and his wife Cynthia Ann Owens. James Butner and Cora are in the 1900 census for Wash Twp, DeKalb Co MO where he is working for the railroad. They moved to Sonoma Co CA and are in the 1910 census for Vallejo/Petaluma City, Sonoma Co CA. James Edward Butler died just 5 mos after the census on 16 Sept 1910. He is buried in Cypress Hill Memorial Park, Petaluma, Sonoma Co CA. I think Cora Butner remarried, but would like to talk with family to know for sure. James and Cora had 3 children:
Lillian Butner b. Aug 1892 MO (at home in 1910 census)
Carl T Butner b. 10 Aug 1899 MO d. 15 June 1963 Sonoma Co CA
James Clair Butner b. 29 July 1905 CA d. 4 Oct 1981 Sonoma Co CA

The reason I think Cora (Riley) butner remarried is that there is a 14 yr old 'stepson' James Clair Butner living with a John Walgren age 50 born Sweden, who is a foreman for the railroad, in Bodega Twp, Sonora Co. CA. But Cora is not in the home. Would like to find out some oral history on this family.
