First of all, I’d like to say that I did not take this picture. I simply scanned it. This was definitely taken in the days before digital photography – otherwise whoever had taken this would have immediately known that they didn’t center the gravestone in this picture. I have to work with what I have though. Someday, when I visit Sioux City again, I”ll make sure that I take a new picture.
Harry C. Robertson was my great-grandmother Marie Robertson Thornton’s older brother. He fought in World War I received a Purple Heart.
Unfortunately, his dates are not visible in this picture. What I can read is:

He was born 3 Nov 1892 in Avoca, Iowa and died 21 Jul 1968 in Sioux City, IA.
He is buried in Cavalry Cemetery in Sioux City, IA.
