One hundred seven years ago this week, May H. Bennett married Henry Harris in Quarryville, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. May was born in Delaware City, Delaware but grew up in Lancaster County. Henry was born in Danville, Pennsylvania, but resided in Pueblo, Colorado, and that is where the couple relocated after they married. It is possible that they met through May’s uncle, William M. Ogle who was a physician in Las Animas County, Colorado in the early twentieth century.
She and Henry Harris had a daughter, Sarah, born about 1917 in Pennsylvania. I have found the family in the 1920-1940 censuses in Pueblo, Colorado, but not yet in the 1910 census. Therefore, the closest I can narrow down when they moved to Colorado was between 1905 and 1920. It may have been after 1917 when Sarah was born, but I have had instances with other ancestors where the woman moved back home to be close to family during a pregnancy, although I will admit, none at such a distance.
May H. Bennett was the granddaughter of Benjamin N. Ogle and Clara Matthews of Delaware City, Delaware and the daughter of George C. Bennett and Sarah Ogle. She is my first cousin three times removed. Benjamin N. Ogle was my third great grandfather.
