Clark Owen Boyd gave Boomer R. Boyd as the name of his father on his Social Security application, and his mother as Maggie Clark Dale. Maggie is the daughter if Daniel W. Dale of Clay Co. MO, but I'm having no luck with Boomer, which is most likely a nickname. Maggie was born c.1869 to give a time reference. Clark was raised by his grandparents, but I have no info on when Maggie died or any other circumstances.

This will require a lot more searching on your part.  You might want to try plugging in sibling names in the free search tool at  https://familysearch.org/  to see if there is any more.  Bloomer Boyd can be found from 1900 to 1940  in census data with his wife Fanny.  They were married abt 1896 so Maggie Dale must have died prior to that date and after 1891 when Clark was born.

'Bloamer' Boyd is living with the Rice family in 1880 - listed as 'son' to Sam Rice and Ellen Rice.  All the other children are 'Rice' - indicating that Ellen might have remarried to Mr. Rice after something happened to Mr. Boyd.  In 1870, Ellen Boyd is living in MO with 4 children, no clarification as to widow or married.  One of her sons is 'Blew Boyd' born the correct year as the Bloomer Boyd who married Fanny.  Maybe her husband Mr. Boyd died during the Civil War.  These pieces may or may not be part of your puzzle.   Good Luck  Example below:
