This is my maternal grandfather, b. abt. 1889 in Washington, D.C. to John Samuel Drury (Sr.) and Alice Matilda Mason Drury.
He married Ella Elizabeth Donegan in 1912 in Washington, D.C. They had three children, John Samuel Drury, b. 18 Feb 1914, Mary Elizabeth ("Betty") Drury, b. 11 Oct 1916, and my mother, Jane Marie Drury, b. 12 Nov 1932.

John was a salesman, the a sales manager for coal & ice companies in D.C.; he was employed by J. P. Agnew Coal & Ice from about 1910 to 1945, when he had to retire due to poor health. He & Ella first lived on Warren St., in SW D.C., then moved to 39th St., NW, in Glover Park in the early- to mid-1930s. he died when mother was only 15, so I never go tto know him. All who did know him spoke highly fo his humor, mild personality and kindness.
