help find the father of clair (bontiel) schreffler

  Clair Schreffler is my grandmother and I have hit a brick wall when it comes to finding her father's birth date, birth place, marriage date, divorce date, death date, burrial place.  I have not been able to find any of these things.  None of the people in the family are still alive to give me any help.  The people at  Midwest Historical and Genealogical, Society, Inc. has pointed me in the right direction many times.  But they have run out of ideas that do not cost a lot of money which I do not have.  If you have any suggestion I would be most appreciated.

Fibrolin@aol.co is where you can reached direct.

husband James Roberts born abt. 1863 in Illinois
wife Mary born abt. 1857 in Arkansas
Son William E abt. sept. 1892 in Indian Territory
son Benjamin abt. Nov 1894 in Indian Territory
step son Columbus Verils (Vails, Vales) abt. sept. 1882 in Indian Territory
step son Freddy Verils (Vails, Vales) abt. Feb. 1885 in Indian Territory
step son John Verils (Vails, Vales) abt. Jun 1887 in Indian Territory

I have found family trees on ancestry.com that show his parents to be:
James Alexander Roberts born abt. 1829 in Alabama
Lucinda Cole born abt. 1833 in Tennesee
but I have not been able to substantiate that.
