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.
