I am researching the CODER line and found some names that appear in your posting.
ROBERT B. CODER was born about 1848 in Illinois. He was the son of ELISHA B. CODER and ELIZA WILLARD FAULKNER. In the 1850 U.S. census the Coders are in Logan County, Illinois. In 1860, after Elisha’s death, Robert is with his mother and siblings in Moultrie County, near Sullivan, Illinois. In 1870 Robert is listed as 21 years old and resides with Eliza, Willard, and Samuel Coder in E.Nelson, P.O. Sullivan, Moultrie County, Illinois. Nearby are several households of Hagermans, including HIRAM HAGERMAN, 22, and BENJAMIN HAGERMAN, 28. Another neighbor JAMES HAGERMAN and his wife EMILY HAGERMAN who have a daughter RHODA HAGERMAN who is is 17 years old and was born in Ohio, as were her parents.
On 4 June 1871 in Moultrie County, Illinois, Robert B. Coder married RHODA A. HAGERMAN, born January 1853. They had a son, JAMES ROBERT CODER, born about December 1873.
Before 1880 Robert B. Coder died. In the 1880 census Rhoda has remarried. She and her husband JOSEPH REED live in North Okaw(?) Township, Coles County, Illinois. James Coder, 6 years old, lives with them, as does Rhoda’s father Joseph Hagerman, now a widower. In the 1900 census Rhoda and Joseph Reed live in Alva City, Alva Township, Woods County, Oklahoma Territory and have seven children: BENJAMIN A. REED, JOSEPH H. REED, CHARLES S. REED, LUTHER W. REED, EMMA M. REED, EDITH E. REED, and VIRGIL C. REED.
In the 1900 census James R. Coder is married. He and his wife OLIVE E. CODER have a daughter BESSIE CODER born in June of 1898. According to the census James and Olive have been married 4 years.
In 1910 JAMES R. CODER is living with Rhoda and Joseph Reed in Alva. James is a mason and plasterer. Olive appears to have died between 1900 and 1910. In 1920 James is a retail merchant living in Benton Township, Beaver County, Oklahoma. Bessie, 19, lives with him. A neighbor is William L. Reed, 33. (I wonder if this is Luther W. Reed?)
In 1930, James, 56, lives with Clarence Hiatt and family in Alva. His status is listed as “visitor.”
