  1. I imagine they were fairly well off to be having printed invites etc in 1925. My family came from humbler beginnings

  2. According to (which only shows them through 1940), they lived in Sidney, New York and had three children: Louise (1929), Lucille (1933), and Burnett (1937).

    They are buried next to each other in Delaware County, New York.
