Orville, Katharine, and William Wright 1909

Orville Wright, Katherine Wright (sister of Orville), and William Wright in 1909.

Orville Wright, of course, was one of the "Wright Brothers." His sister took care of him throughout his life but when she decided to marry at age 51 (in 1926), he wouldn't speak to her. (Presumably, because she was"leaving him.") He didn't speak to her until over 2 years after her marriage when she contracted pneumonia and died. He was at her deathbed.

William Wright is not identified but there was a famous British aviator of this name and about the right age. This may be that man.
