Lily Westerlin and Delbert Guess

Lily was married to Delbert Patterson Guess on 31 Oct 1917 in Lexington, Dawson County, Nebraska.  Based his WW1 draft record from September 12, 1918, Delbert was a farmer, employed on his own farm.  He was 19 at the time of their marriage. By the time of the 1920 Federal Census, the two had a son, not yet 1–my grandfather Merle. Delbert is still farmer, and they are still in Dawson County, Nebraska.  They moved to Yakima County, Washington in the 1930s (more on that in another post). In the 1920 Federal Census, Lily’s parents are both identified as born in Sweden, with their native language Swedish.

Here are Lily and Delbert (again, I don’t know dates):
