Elbert lived to see four great-great-grandchildren. Margaret lived to see 11 great-great-grandchildren.
Elbert's youngest brother, Thomas Leroy Drury, married Margaret's sister, Anabelle (Susie) (Thompson) Davenport. This made their children double cousins.
Nothing was more important to Elbert & Margaret than their family. Every Sunday and every holiday, everyone gathered at their home for dinner. They were the best of times.
