Hi Jean,

I went out to Antioch Library and also to the Historical Society today to check on Henry Isaac. I did find obituaries for both of them. I did copy down some of the information.

Mary died on June 23, 1932 at home on Lake Street in Antioch. She was born in Indianapolis, IN in 1954. Her and Harry were married in Chicago December 29, 1874 and after a few years moved to Antioch. She was survived by her husband Harry of Antioch, her brother Henry Schwartz, 2 sisters, Erma Kuecker, Mrs. Josehine Ginter of Chicago. She was preceded in death by one son Charles several years earlier. She was at Strang Funeral Home, and burial was at Graceland Cemetery in Chicago.

Harry died on July 21, 1932 at the Lake County Hospital. It stated that he was a cigar maker, well known resident of Antioch and prominent in village affairs. He had been ill for several months and after the death of his wife 4 weeks earlier he was removed from the house. He was born in England December 29, 1853 coming to Antioch 22 years ago. For a number of years he was a cigar maker, and was clerk of Antioch for 14 years. He too is buried at Graceland Cemetery in Chicago.

I also found them listed in the phone directory for July 1928. It showed Harry Isaacs, living on Main, phone number Antioch-102-R.

I hope some of this might help you.
