NAME(S): Roy & Ella Grimes
PHOTOGRAPHER: E. S. Hall, Champaign, Illinois
CARD SIZE: 15.2 cm x 22.7 cm
WHERE PURCHASED: Marion, Illinois
WHEN PURCHESED: June 3, 2016

NOTE: Here is my reasoning for John H. & Sarah E. (Miller) Grimes as parents for Roy.
            In the 1900 census Roy's mother's name is unreadable but she is listed as being
            born in August 1847 and widowed. Sarah E. Miller is listed as born August 13, 1847.
            Roy is listed in the Social Security Death Index and on FindAGrave.com
            as having been born in
Vermilion County, Illinois in 1881. John H. Grimes and
            Sarah E. Miller were married in Vermilion County, Illinois in 1867. Again, Roy's mother
            is widowed by 1900. John H. Grimes died March 2, 1889 and is buried in Woodlawn
            Cemetery in Indianola, Vermilion County, Illinois as is Sarah E. Grimes his wife who
            died September 29, 1924.
