Didn't find the grandfather, but just in case you didn't have this: Your father had 2 siblings - Viola Pearl Fraley b. May 1893 and Roy Fraley born May 1899. In the 1900 St. Charles Mo. Census, Mary Magdaline Fraley and her three children are living with her parents - Theodore Falls age 53 and Sara Fallis, age 54.
It wasn't unusual during this time period for husbands to desert their families and state new somewhere else. My husband grandfather did that - left a wife and child in Oklahoma and came to Virginia and married again. I don't blame Mary for "lying" to him when he returned. She had been abandoned and left with all the responsibility. She felt she owed him nothing. Just seeing her side of it.
