Tombstone Tuesday: Harry C. Robertson

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:

Harry C Robertson
Iowa
PVT BTRY B 129 FIELD ARTY
WORLD WAR I

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.
