Hi I am researching Marion

Hi I am researching Marion O. Henry Family from Armstrong County, Pa. and he was married to a Lurline Willison. I was wondering if you know if the Lurline in your photo married a Marion Henry?

Marion Ott Henry

Marion Ott Henry was my grandfather and was in fact married to Lurline Priscilla Willison. they had 11 children, my father was the 3rd one, Claude Wesley Henry. I have a lot of information about the Samuel Porter Willson family but nothing about the Henry's other than that They were married on May 27, 1908. Marion's father and mother, Sylvester and Elizabeth Henry are buried in the Kellersburg cemetary. What information do you have regarding them?
