1879 CDV of Baby Harry Warner, taken by a North Adams, Massachusetts, studio

1879 carte de visite of a baby identified on the reverse as Harry Warner. The CDV was produced by the Ward studio of North Adams, Massachusetts.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Harry Orville Warner was born 31 May 1879 at North Adams,  Massachusetts, the son of Staples J. and Alice E. (Brusie) Warner, who were born at Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and Alford, Massachusetts, respectively.

Harry's paternal grandparents were Erastus and Sarah F. (Staples) Warner.  His maternal grandparents were Orville J. and Catherine (Post) Brusie.

On 1 May 1907 at Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Harry married Luella Catherine Middleton, daughter of James F. and Angelina Augusta (Garland) Middleton.  Luella was born in New Jersey about May 1884 (as indicated on the 1900 Census of Chicago, Illinois where she and her family were then living - her birth year could be off a year or so in either direction).

By the time of the 1920 Census, Harry and Luella had moved to New York City.  The 1930 Census has them listed at Buffalo, New York.  Harry was involved in the paper industry, as a salesman and manager.  I didn't see children living with them at the time of the Censuses I found, but they may have had children.
