BARNES, Orville & Dorothy, early 1900's in Grand Forks city, potato merchant

Classification: Query
Surnames: BARNES, COWLES
Looking for info/data/stories about Orville BARNES b. 1868 in Iowa & died aft. 1930, and his wife Dorothy, b. VT, died aft. 1930. They had 4 children: Martha b. 1894, Harrison C. b. 1897, Dorothy b. 1903, and Frederick b. 1905. On 1930 census, Frederick & Martha are in Kansas City, MO, and Harrison is still living at home with his parents Orville & Dorothy. Orville BARNES' occupation: 1920 census: president of produce company, son Harrison is salesman for the company, & 1930 census: merchant, wholesale potatoes. I would like any more info available on these people (obituaries would be wonderful but I don't have death dates), and contact with any living descendants. Orville BARNES is a brother to my great-grandmother Mary Cowles BARNES - they are children of Harrison BARNES & Eliza COWLES (both died in IA).
