Harry may be a nickname for Harold Burgess. This photo was found in Oswego County, New York with another on our site of Henrietta Blasingame, Mary Lela Blasingame and James Blasingame taken in Clinton, Dewitt County, Illinois, see their photo here. The inscription on back is handwritten by the same hand, found together. That photo has written "Mary Alice's Sister & family" known to be Henrietta's younger sister, Mary Alice Jenkins.

A beautiful close up portrait of these 2 boys. Sadly, baby Leroy died at age 2, fairly soon after this photo was taken. He is buried at the Milo IOOF Cemetery in Milo, Warren County, Iowa.
