    Notes 
    • RJCarr: William D. (Bill) Carr advised, and Ted Carney corroborated, that Louis had his shoes repaired by his brother Arthur when funds ran short during the depression. Allegedly, with funds scarce at times in parts of the Carr family, there was irritation that their mother (Elizabeth Donnelly) donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local hospitals. (Louis Drury was the man who instilled in his eldest grandson - me - a habit of saving a portion of all earnings, however small. Those savings began in 2nd grade when he would tip me for trips made to the grocery store around the corner from his apartment. Good habits are hard to break.)

      RJCarr, 26 Apr 2022: When visiting with Terry (Malone) Carr after her husband Bill Carr's funeral, Terry remarked that when his parent's apartment in Spring Lake, NJ was vacated following their final move to Carroll, IA, a stash of cash was found under the living room rugs. There were chuckles between and among Bill's three offspring.

      During a health and welfare telephone call a week after Bill's funeral, Terry mentioned finding a "spare" wallet in her Bill's underwear drawer. The wallet had no cards or identification in it - but there was $200 which led her to chuckle. She then found a second "spare" wallet in a jacket he last wore when they traveled to Argentina in the early 2000s. That wallet, again, had no identification, but it contained $1,000 in cash; more chuckling. And of course, she later learned that there were unexpected burial bills to be paid: $500 to open his grave and $490 to close it. Bill must have assumed there would be unforeseen burial costs, so he hid funds for those occasions, as his father must have taught him. :)

    Marriage 01 MAR 1924  [6
    • SOCIETY NEWS
      A lovely wedding took place Saturday morning in the St. Patrick's church, Olyphant, when Miss Mary Elizabeth Martin, of Olyphant, became the bride of Louis Drury Carr, of Paterson, N. J. The Rev. Patrick J. Murphy performed the ceremony and celebrated the nuptial mass which followed. Before the ceremony Mrs. William McNulty sang "I Love You Truly." She also sang "At Dawning” and ‘O, Lord, I Am Not Worthy" during the offertory and communion. The bride, who was given in marriage by her uncle, Attorney P. L. Walsh, of Olyphant, was charmingly attired in a gown of white crepe chiffon over charmeuse, fashion in bouffant style with a count train, and trimmed with rare old lace. Her veil, which was of red lace, was arranged becomingly in crown effect. She carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley and forget-me-nots. Miss Martin’s wrap was a cape of rare paisley, which was also worn by her grandmother on her wedding day. Miss Rosemary Walsh, a cousin of the bride, was maid of honor. She wore a frock of pink georgette fashioned over yellow in bouffant style and a poke hat of pink mohair, trimmed with lace and rainbow streamers. She carried a bouquet of red roses. Nona Bried, a niece of the bride, was also in the bridal party as a flower girl. She was prettily attired in a French dress of pale pink georgette with poke bonnet to match and carried a basket of assorted nosegays. Charles Neil, of Paterson, N. J., was best man, and Thomas Fadden and John Grimshaw, of Patterson (sic), were ushers. The bride's gift to her attendant was a pink ostrich fan mounted in old ivory. The groom’s gift to the best man was a platinum watch chain, and the ushers, white gold watch chains. Following the ceremony there was a reception at the home of the bride’s grandfather, the late P. J. Kelly, with her mother, Miss William Martin, and her grandmother, Mrs. P. S. Kelly, receiving. After the reception Mr. and Mrs. Carr left on an extended trip through New England and Canada. They will reside at Clifton, N. J., after April 1. Mrs. Carr is a graduate of East Stroudsburg Normal school and has been teaching in the Olyphant schools for the past few years. Mr. Carr is supervising principal of the schools of Clifton, N. J. The out-of-town guests at the wedding and reception were as follows: Mr. and Mrs. William Seward Carr, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chapman and son, Warren, Mrs. Clara Stallard, Mr. and Mrs. John Russell Pyle and Miss Elizabeth Carr, Mrs. Carr Richard (sic), and Henry Parke Carr, of Paterson, N. J.; Mrs. A. B. Knight and Miss Nell O'Boyle, of New York; Mrs. Mary Kennedy, Mr. and Mrs. J. J. McCarthy and daughter, of Wilkes-Barre; Misses Nell, and Mary Shavlin, of Freeland; Misses Mary and Helen McDonnell, of Dunmore; and Miss Madeline Larkin, of Carbondale.
      The Tribune (Scranton, PA)
    • Louis Drury and Mary Elizabeth [Martin] Carr spent most of their married-years in New Jersey. In about 1983 when their health began to deteriorate and with no family members nearby, their children agreed that the optimum place for them to live would be near their son, William (Bill). So Louis and Mary flew along with their sons and a granddaughter, Mary Alice Stockdale who served as a flight nurse, from Spring Lake, NJ to Carroll, Iowa on a chartered plane. Bill was able to visit them daily in their assisted living home until they died. Thus their final resting placed became Iowa. When Bill and his wife later moved to Mississippi it seemed that Louis & Mary were being stranded alone in the Midwest (!), so two grandchildren (Regis 7 Suzanne) thought to have them re-intered in a Carr family plot in Cedar Lawn Cemetery in Paterson, NJ. Those plans were tabled when Bill advised that he planned to join his parents when that time arrives.
    Age at Marriage Louis was 24 years and 9 months old - Mary was 26 years and 10 months old.

    Link to Google MapsMilitary Service - WWI On 01 October, 1918, less than three weeks after he registered for the draft, Louis entered Company C, Student Army Training Center (SATC) at NYU. He was paid $30/ month while he participated in the established curriculum. Although the details of his specific area of concentration are not known, a Marshall S. Brown document in the NYU archives indicated the draftees were provided 42 hours/week of essential and allied subjects while also performing military drill for 11 hours/week. Essential courses included military law, hygiene and sanitation, surveying, map making, modern ordinance, and a war-issues course. At the end of their studies [between one and three terms, depending on age] the students were assigned to officer or non-commissioned officer training programs, a depot brigade, or permitted further study in engineering, medicine or law. That first term of SATC officer training had been underway for less than 6 weeks when the Armistice was signed in Paris. Deliberations about the status of the SATC continued until 26 November when a telephone call from the AGO (Adjutant Generals Office) stipulated that the program would be deactivated on 19 December. Thus on the specified date, Louis and countless other privates were issued their final pay. Louis received $42.60 in cash which included his November pay of $30, a pro-rated December pay of $19 and a quartermaster deduction of $6.40 which may have been for an item of equipment, clothing or perhaps text books. Following active military service of almost 12 weeks, Louis was a WWI veteran and once again a civilian. - 1 OCT 1918 - Manhattan (New York County), New York, USA Find all individuals with events at this location Link to Google Earth

    Carr, Louis Drury: 2012 Educator and Grand Knight
    Initially this biography, based simply upon memories, was a single page long and thus proved to be a great disappointment to say the least - surely more could be learned with a modicum of effort! After researching his WWI service - which proved to be an education in itself - many other details fell into place. As with the other histories on this website - all veterans - I am indebted to family members for their contributions - the errors are all mine and will be corrected when brought to my attention.
