Harry B. got married

Harry B. is Lloyd's younger brother. Mary's note on January 19th looks like something that was squeezed in after her writings of this day, and probably was. Did they even know Harry was getting married this day?

This was Harry's second marriage. He was previously married to Cora Jessica Carnes, and between them they had one daughter, Katherine Leah. Leah was the name of Lloyd and Harry's mother. She would die a little more than a month after her namesake was born in 1910.

Leah Benson, along with her husband Clinton Burkley "Burt" Benson are buried in an unmarked grave in Cardington, Ohio. They are buried with Pearl Benson, Lloyd and Daisy's young son that died during the flu epidemic. If you find his tombstone, you will also find the burial site of Burt and Leah Benson.

But back to Harry's marriage... he married Richardine Helen Cryder, not quite 22 years of age. From this marriage would be born Violet (1938), Kenneth (1940) and Leonard (1945).
