Query: Raymond Seebode, Gibson County

            I'm trying to find some information on my great grandfather Raymond Willis Seebode of Princeton, Gibson County, Indiana. He was born 23 January 1904, to an Emma Montgomery, who is on the birth certificate, but no father is listed.
            I would like some help in hopefully tracing my family. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.

[IGS NOTE: We found that

[IGS NOTE: Emma J. Montgomery married Christ Seebode on 22 September 1898 in Gibson County. The 1900 census for Greer Township, Warrick County, Indiana shows:
Christ Seebode born May 1861 age 39 married 2 years born Indiana father born Germany mother born Germany occupation: farm laborer
Emma Seebode wife born May1881 age 19 married 2 years 1 child born 1 child still living born Indiana father born Indiana mother born Indiana
Cora Seebode daughter born July 1899 age 10/12 born Indiana father born Indiana mother born Indiana

It looks like the marriage may have ended in Emma’s death or divorce before 1910 – in the 1910 census for Center Township, Gibson County, Cora Seebolt age 10 and Estella P. Seebolt age 8 are listed as granddaughters in the household of Levi J. Montgomery age 58 and Martha A. Montgomery age 56. Christopher Seebode is found in the 1920 census in Center Township, Gibson County listed as age 58 and single.]
