Thanks for stopping by.

Update from Iggy:
Henry Bury (1895 in Illinois - 1994) : Find A Grave Memorial# 37623870, married Ruth Williams (1894 - 1992) : Find A Grave Memorial# 37623871 sometime between 1910 and 1920. I suspect the photo is there wedding photo.

They lived in Stockland, Iroquois, Illinois. Henry was a "grain farmer."

The 1930 US census lists them with the following children:
Helen D Bury 14
Evelyn A Bury 12
Catherine J Bury 10
Donald R Bury 8

  2. Looks like they got married in November 1915, so you are likely correct there.

    Ruth and Henry were my paternal great grandparents, Donald was my grandfather. I would be very interested in purchasing this photo. Thank you for sharing it.
