In Reply to: Henry P Flury Torrington by Bob Boss of 26

Bob, I looked into Henry P. Flury some and here is what I found. In the June 1900 U. S. Census he was in Kearney County, Blaine Township, Nebraska with wife Nora born Apr 1873 in Minnesota, three sons and three daughters all born in Nebraska: George b: Apr 1891, Frank b: Oct 1892, Mable b: Dec 1893, Chester b: Feb 1895, Myrtle b: Sep 1897, Irene b: Jan 1899. Henry was born Jan 1865. Also with them was a 7 year old "servant" Frank Michell. He next surfaces in the January 1920 U. S. Census in Platte County, Sybille precinct, Wyoming, only with son Frank. Both censuses list Henry's father as being born in Switzerland and mother born in Pennsylvania. The 7 Jan 1920 Wheatland Times has a large ad for an auction: sold his farm 5 miles west of Wheatland, auction of stock, machinery, household goods, auction Tuesday, January 13, H. P. Flury & Son, Owners. The 21 Jan 1920 Wheatland Times has a short notice: "H. P. Flury and son, Frank Flury, who held a sale at their farm five miles west of town Tuesday of last week, are going to Scottsbluff, Neb., to work for a time. They have purchased town property in Scottsbluff and Gering." He next surfaces in Torrington, Wyoming in 1921. The 3 March 1921 Torrington Telegram, p. 3, has an ad: Fairmont Cream Station, Buy Cream, Poultry and Eggs. Flour and Feed. Apples. Give Me a Trial, Guarnatee Good Prices and Good Test, In Cash Meat Market Room, back of the Paxton Hotel, H. P. Flury. Another ad in the Torrinton newspaper in 1922 mentions the Fairmont Produce Co. There are many other entries in the Torrington newspaper in 1921 and 1922 which I did not look at. You can access these at www.wyonewspapers.org, click on search newspapers, enter Goshen under County, put in "H. P. Flury" (use the quotes), and click search. For the Wheatland paper, put Platte in the County box. The newspaper archive only goes through 1922. Hope this helps you some.
