Mary Victoria "Tora"
Johnson, daughter of
William Edward & Mary
(Raley) Johnson, married James Henry "Jim"
born in March of 1867 and died in 1960. Jim was born in December
1854 and died in 1937. He was the son of William Henry Cryer and
Elizabeth Ann Thompson. I find one cemetery listing for their child
Oscar Melvin Cryer. Both Victoria and Jim are buried in the St.
Aloysius Catholic Cemetery, in Leonardtown, Maryland.
Elinor was the
second wife of Jim Cryer (his first wife was Noema C.
Goldsborough). Ms. Leona Cryer recorded that she made the
best flour pancakes using starter batter instead of baking powder.
Starter batter was left-over batter held over day by day for making the
new batter rise.
