Florence was married several times, maybe as many as five times but Belway was her surname when she died at Mission Convalescent Hospital. Other known surnames are Thompson, Gordon and I believe Brown and Strickland.

Annie Stone 32 sister, divorced

Henry Thompson married Florence May Greer on 17 Feb 1897 at Butte, Silver Bow, MT. This was Florence's first marriage and I believe the family photo on this memorial is that of Florence's wedding day.

The following shows Florence's husband in Canada, it is unknown if Florence is with him at this time.

Great Aunt May, I only wish I had known you, I don't know why we never met. The stories I would love to hear, the questions I have still unanswered. Alas, I cannot change the past, only the future. Love Eileen
