Francis Marion Herring - Another brick wall, hopefully not for long!

Francis Marion Herring was born in Sacramento, Sacramento, California, United States on January 1, 1864.  His last known documented location is found in the 1900 U.S. Census in Parker Township, Morris County, Kansas with his wife, Sallie Alice Herring, their 3 surviving children and a brother in law, John F. Byers.

Sallie Alice is found in the 1910 U.S. Census listed as a widow in Clinton Ward 1, Henry, Missouri, United States.

An initial search of various online databases lists nothing further about Francis between 1900 and 1910.  I am interested in finding out when and where he died and where his remains were buried.  And I would like to find out about his parents and other family members.
