Mary E. __?__
Husband:  Henry E. PERSINGER
Birth:  1891/2 or Oct 1893, IN
Occupation:  farmer
Sister:  Anna A. PERSINGER, b. May 1883, IN
Aunt:  Barbara Elizabeth PERSINGER, b. 1849, IN; m. John EVERWINE

Grandfather:  David W. PERSINGER, b. Feb 1824, OH
Grandmother:  Christina KILLION, b. Jan 1828, VA

If, as it appears, David & Christina had only two children, John W. and Barbara, then presumably Henry's father was John W., who would appear to have been missed in the censuses in 1870 and 1880 (along with other kin known to have survived) and to have died before the 1900 census.
