peckham grandparents

I would like to find information about my Peckham side of the family. My father was Lawrence Allan Peckham Jr. and he was born in Fremont, Ne. in 1917. His parents were divorced when he was very young and the only information I have about his dad's side of the family is as follows:
His father was Lawrence Allan Peckham and he may have lived in Memphis, Tennessee and he may have died
of a heart attack in 1935. He was called up for the 1917 draft in Fremont, Ne. His parents may have lived in
Grand Island, Ne. and he may have had a sister or cousin by the name of Helen Peckham, and she was listed
in the 1912 Fremont, Ne. school yearbook. Lawrence Allan Peckham and Ruth Mildred Cheney (my dad's
parent's) may have either becom engaged or married in Feb. 1914 in Fremont, Ne. My dad was their only child,
but he said that as a kid he had an Aunt Helen and that he had been told that he had a half brother in Tennessee.
There was the name of C. G. Peckham listed in an obit. notice and also in my dad's baby book, and I think that
they may have been the parents of Lawrence Allan Peckham Sr. and Helen Peckham. There was a reference
in my dad's baby book about Helen Peckham being proposed to at Christmas in 1917 or 1918 by a Donald
Hanna. If anyone has some information about Lawrence Allan Peckham Sr. I would appreciate receiving information.
Thanks, Martha Peckham Allred
